Today is Intergenerational Day. It’s a good time to read through The Open Door Collective’s recent background paper on Intergenerational Literacy. It briefly reflects on how helping parents develop their literacy skills has a double benefit, improving their workforce skills and improving their children’s success at school. It outlines specific actions for parents to take to support their child’s learning at different ages.
It’s also a good time to take another look at the Harvard Center on the Developing Child’s video on Building Adult Capabilities to Improve Child Outcomes: a Theory of Change.
