We have for today... Parental involvement as a strategy to
develop third graders´ literacy

The process Third graders presented low scores in literacy development (writing and reading): 43/100
M.E.N standards and syllabus of the school. Why literacy practices?
The existence of a problem. Instruments *Diagnosis test *Interviews with
tutor teachers. *Informal interview The homeroom teacher and the learners coincided one of the causes of low scores was insufficient parent involvement in supporting them with English. Parents struggle with their children´s
learning due to their lack of time also their English understanding as a foreign language. * survey in
questionnaire form 2. Parental good feelings: school treatment (65%), good relations between parent communities within schools (78%) comfortable with all school staff and community (79%) and beliefs about school is a good space which offer them opportunities to contribute (86% ) also school listen to inquiries or difficulties and how improve school process (56 %). 1. Little parental participation. Only mandatory meetings and school events.
81 % over 100% 3. They consider they have a role to play in supporting the education of their children:

Also, 100% of parents do believe their intervention improve children academic performance (confidence and motivation):

Parent e:”Porque si hay dialogo en casa se refleja en la escuela con seguridad”
Parent f: “Porque se ban sentir mas seguros mas comfiados y aprenden más”
Parent g:” Porque se está más pendiente y uno como padres motiva mucho al niño”
Parent h: Porque como padres. Somos parte de la solución”. Results Inquiry Plan What does a study on parental involvement
reveal about
literacy practices? what do we know? Parent involvement The M.E.N. (Ministerio de Educación Nacional), 2007. ¿Cómo participar en los procesos educativos de la escuela? Education quality is connected with strengthening family as formers and active participants in the children´s formation process. * Parents are formers and educators (familiar life /inside the community whose participation is not punctual information given by teachers:

“co-responsibility” in the children´s formation and building on values with administrators, teachers, other parents and all educative community in benefit of children * the family is the natural environment of development in children, the United Nations´ Convention on the Rights of the Child – (1989)” * Family is an organization where integrants HAVE TO actively participate in the children´s formation, with social responsability: own and community welfare. OUR REAL CONTEXT *Poverty

"Many families, find it difficult to `join' an organization that is dominated by middle-class norms" (Cooper & Jackson, 1989, p. 266). Institutions are experiencing difficulties when they try to contact the child's caretaker (Ascher, 1988).

Poorer parents often recall many negative experiences in their school-related activities (Edwards & Young, 1992). Young mothers may not have had extensive stimulating experiences in school if they were recent dropouts (Lewis, 1992). Low-income students and students of color seem to represent the numbers who receive a poor education (Bank, 1993).


Since English is not the native language of some subgroups, communication is difficult between parents and school personnel (Tran, 1982). A compounded problem: the dominant language in the home conflicts with assignments in English. Frustration also exists because the school work is not accompanied by directions or explanatory material (Finders & Lewis, 1994). Limited-English-Proficient (LEP) special needs for parents and children is a group or team of school personnel that helps bilingual families understand school practices and opportunities for their youngsters.
