Literacy is a tool of liberation.
No child should be at the mercy of the state to learn to read and write. We must center homes and communities and empower every one with an understanding of the literacy instruction process. It is a human right.
While it's been said time and time again that "parents are the first teachers," too often parents aren't given the frameworks and skills to teach their children to read. Without the proper knowledge base, many parents feel incapable and are left to
center school as their source and/or pay for third party services in order to learn. Both are problematic and inequitable options as they lead to privilege to the children with better teachers or better resources.
All parents and caregivers should have a clear understanding of the early literacy instruction process.
This course delivers that.
