Prepared by Jean Rasmussen of Literacy BC, this Framework is intended as a guide to promote good practice and provide support and information to the many individuals and groups involved in family literacy
This document was prepared in 1999 by a team of family literacy stakeholders led by Literacy BC and the Provincial Family Literacy Working Group – Training and Standards Sub-Committee. The framework is intended to promote good practice and provide support and information to the wide range of individuals and groups involved with family literacy throughout British Columbia. The document includes a definition of family literacy and statements of the goals and values of family literacy in B.C. The Statements of Best Practice section presents a list of 16 factors that contribute to best practice in family literacy, from philosophy and planning to resources and language diversity. The Standards of Best Practice section reworks those 16 factors into a checklist to provide an evaluation tool for program planning and development.
