Broughton, Beverley J., Mallan, Kerry M., & Walker, Sue (1997) An investigation into family awareness and use of literacy resources available in the community and school: Report on a research project undertaken by QUT in collaboration with Kruger and Carole Park State Schools.

Abstract

This research project investigated (i) sites and materials in community settings that constitute contexts for authentic literacy practices; (ii) literacy practices that families exercised in the process of ordinary family activities; (iii) perceptions of family literacy practices held by professionals working with families in the community. The research approach was underpinned by a view of families and communities as contexts rich in a range of opportunities to support children's literacy learning. Recommendations and resultant materials highlighted the opportunities for parents to engage their children with literacy within their own community contexts.

This is a research report with recommendations and materials for use by professionals in working with parents

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
