Abstract:

Discusses the connections between adult literacy and children's literacy within a society, toward more literate communities. Starts by describing the family literacy environment in Ontario including service providers, programming and policy frameworks. Then gaps and opportunities to provide more progressive, effective and coordinated services are suggested, including the call for more Canadian data regarding the possible correlations between factors such as parents' educational achievement and involvement with their children's literacy development and success at school. Furthermore, common elements of effective programs, as well as the outcomes they should strive to achieve and measure are described. With these ideas in mind, significant intergenerational family literacy programs are highlighted from Hamilton (Ontario, Canada), the United States and the United Kingdom.
