Get Set Learn! (2006)

A Case Study of A Family Literacy Program in Waterloo Region

Children whose parents have low literacy skills are at a higher risk to grow up to have low literacy skills themselves. This case study details a successful family literacy program in the Waterloo Region of Ontario called Get Set Learn! This program targeted parents on Ontario Works (a welfare program) with pre-school aged children in hopes of breaking the cycle of being disadvantaged because of parental low literacy levels. The case study provides background information on learning theories and how Get Set Learn! incorporates the various learning theories into its curriculum and presentation methods.
