Adult Literacy Through Family Workshops [Video - 3:27] (2008)

This video, about three and a half minutes in length, focuses on a program that combines writing with reading to help both parents and young children advance their literacy skills.

The “Picture It, Publish It, Read It” program was developed by professors at Mount Saint Vincent University in Nova Scotia and was piloted with a parents’ group in Yarmouth, in the southwest region of that province.

The program builds on the parents’ existing knowledge of the importance of reading to their children by showing how writing fits into overall literacy. Children in the program were given cameras to take photos in their neighbourhood, then used the pictures they had taken to make books about their interests.

The program helps parents gain confidence in their ability to support their children’s learning as they begin school.

The video was prepared by the Adult Learning Knowledge Centre (AdLKC).
