Latino Family Literacy Project
Mrs. Zaragoza, Mrs. Collazo and Mrs. Avelar have been leading the Latino Family Literacy program at South Marshall STEM Academy. The program is brought in from the Marshall ISD Bilingual/ESL Department. The literacy program is designed to establish family reading routines for Spanish-speaking and English-speaking parents and their children at their school site. It involves family reading for Hispanic parent involvement, vocabulary development and English language development for parents and their children.
The program engages the parents in reading with their children, reflects the experiences of Latino families, and is centered around universal themes. The program will be expanding soon to Marshall High School.
