Overcoming Poverty: Promoting Literacy in Children from Low-Income Families (1999)

This is the report of a project designed to answer specific questions about reading beliefs and reading proficiency in very young children from low-income families. The objectives were to 1) examine what young children (ages 4 to 8 years) living in poverty believe about their reading and determine how those beliefs come to influence the children's reading proficiency; 2) determine the role that parents in low-income families play in influencing their children's beliefs about reading; and 3) develop recommendations for the design of early intervention programs aimed at increasing reading proficiency for children living in poverty.
