Eager to Learn - A Course on Family Literacy (1999)

Eager to Learn has been designed as a resource binder. The course modules can be used independently from the research findings in other sections. The literature review and focus group results provide interesting and unique perspectives on how to plan and deliver family literacy programs of all sorts, not just those meant for a teaching environment.
The Eager to Learn course has been based on the belief that enrollment in ABE gives adult learners the unique ability to co-learn with their children or other young persons in their home environment. This is also true, of course, for parents enrolled in support programs and community outreach services. The course has continuing education applicability to early childhood educators and day care operators

Educators, Trainers & Group Leaders can use this resource binder to:

Deliver an 8-16 week course on family literacy
Raise awareness of parents' skills as teachers
Enrich the curriculum of adult learners
Help train daycare workers & early childhood personnel
Resource Binder includes:
