Sisters and Brothers Reading Together: An Untapped Resource in Family Literacy
Sisters and Brother Reading Together is an extension of author Marcia Baghban's work in teacher education. Baghban responds to teachers who are in search of methods that utilize aspects of family structure to aid in learning processes, especially in reading. The topic illustrates the concern of both classroom teachers and the author with the steadily increasing numbers of elementary school children at home after school, without adults but often with their siblings. Given the importance of reading aloud to children who are learning to read, siblings who can and like to read represent a population that teachers and parents can mobilize.
