Reclaiming Family Literacy

Date: 27 June 2006 Time: 1.00 - 2.00 pm

Speaker: Nan Jackson, Partnership Education Service Manager, Rochdale, currently seconded to write an all-age literacy policy for the Borough of Rochdale. "Rochdale LEA has been working in the field of parental involvement in their children's learning since the late 1970's, beginning with the Belfield Reading Project. (Hannon and Jackson 1987). I will discuss our journey from there to the present LSC Family Literacy, Language and Numeracy model of family literacy, and our responses to this agenda. I will look in particular at the way we use creative arts to engage learners from different communities. I will raise some of the issues, assumptions and challenges of seeing family literacy mainly in the context of the Skills for Life agenda, and why it is important to include practitioners, learners and researchers in the discussion about a wider definition of family literacy."
