Involving families and communities in the classroom learning will improve both student engagement and outcomes. One of the ways that families and communities can be involved in students’ learning is to inform them of the importance of various texts that support literacy development and how they can support learning at home.
Create a digital brochure to be introduced at curriculum night to promote literacy in the home as well as a resource for families and the community to inform them of the various texts that will be implemented in the classroom to promote literacy.
Your tri-fold digital brochure should present the process of examining texts, as well as at-home technology tools and digital resources to advance student literacy development.
Your digital brochure should include the following:
- Engaging front cover that identifies the grade level and content area
- The importance of multiple texts to meet the specific needs and abilities of all students
- Two examples of fiction and two examples of non-fiction texts with brief rationales describing the complexity and purpose for each, and how they will be implemented in the content area
- Explanation of how texts are selected through quantitative and qualitative measures
- One example of media and one example of technology, examining how each will creatively support literacy development
- Two resources for families to support literacy development at home, and directions for how families can utilize them.
The brochure should be visually appealing with color, graphic elements, and variations in text.
Support your findings with a minimum of three resources.
