Poster presentation for the 2012 University Scholars Day at the University of North Texas discussing research on factors that affect children's literacy.
Abstract: Reading is an essential skill for children to grow and develop as learners. Children's literacy is a topic that needs to be addressed in school systems as many children are at a disadvantage due to outside factors that affect their literacy, such as their parents' literacy. Illiterate parents can unintentionally create an environment where it is difficult for children to become literate. During this project, I have been researching factors that affect children's literacy. I have also been researching methods in which parents and educators can promote children's literacy. My research has consisted of studies and papers written by other researchers. In my research, I have discovered ways that teachers and illiterate parents can help to improve children's literacy.
