Scholastic Announces First-of-Their-Kind Literacy Events to Help Schools Support Family and Community Engagement
Thu 9:12 am ET (PR Newswire)
NEW YORK, Oct. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Scholastic (SCHL), the global children's publishing, education and media company, today announced the release of Scholastic Literacy Events, comprehensive family engagement kits that educators can use to engage families in their children's literacy development. The framework outlines research-based best practices for schools to effectively engage families and community organizations in support of raising student achievement. The Literacy Events are designed to help cultivate and sustain best practice strategies aligned with the framework. Scholastic's Literacy Events provide tools for districts, schools, teachers, community groups and families to increase their capacity to work together by addressing the framework's "4 C's of Capacity:" Capabilities, Connections, Cognition and Confidence. "Family engagement in a student's academic career can have a significant impact on the student's attendance, academic achievement and overall attitude about school," said Dr. Mapp. "It is important that schools not only show families that they are capable of supporting their children academically but also provide them with the tools to do so."
