MetadataShow full item record
The amount of instructional time teachers have with students is very limited. Many students and families do not engage in literacy activities outside of the classroom environment. The purpose of this case study was to analyze how providing literacy materials affected the home environment. Baseline data were collected from families and students to identify typical after school activities the students engage in. Mixed methods were used throughout the study to collect data. The qualitative data used in this study included observations, communication logs, and student journal logs. The results indicate that providing specific ideas and materials does have a positive impact on a majority of home literacy environments.
