Using Children’s literature as its basis, the 3-day Motheread Institute helps educators learn how to teach parents fun ways to share stories and promote their children’s literacy development. Parents participating in Motheread/Fatheread classes learn how to establish regular reading times and practice active reading with their children.

Training topics include teaching approaches and learning styles, parent education, family engagement, literacy curriculum development, instructional techniques, lesson planning, preparation and presentations, program implementation and evaluation, as well as active group learning and time to practice teaching the curriculum.
