A powerful, proven response…
Motheread/Fatheread® is a family literacy program that does something quite amazing: it helps parents who are poor readers become confident and excited about reading aloud to their children.
Motivated by their love and concern for their children's future, these parents are helped to improve their own literacy skills on the way to becoming more effective parents.
And because it has been shown that the most
important predictor of a child's success in school is whether or not she or he is read to at home, we know
that Motheread/Fatheread® parents are breaking the cycle of school failure. They know it too.
The Wisconsin Humanities Council is eager to hear from organizations who may be interested in forming a partnership to offer Motheread/Fatheread training. Please contact Dena Wortzel Check back here for updates.
