How can educators involved in family literacy initiatives be confident they are providing beneficial, rather than intrusive, experiences? What role should the community play in family literacy issues? How can schools, families, and organizations better collaborate to enhance literacy development for both children arid their caregivers? This volume -- developed by IRA's Family literacy Commission -- presents a wide variety of school-based and organization-sponsored programs and initiatives that address these questions. With it, practitioners and researchers will learn how others are responding to the needs of families and will gain insight into how to develop new programs.
