What would you like to accomplish through a Literacy Night?

Working at a Title 1 school, my biggest goal is to make students and parents feel comfortable and confident with the idea of writing and provide them with ideas and resources.

I would love to present concepts that are multilingual or multicultural. I want to encourage parents and students to work together and come up with ideas on how they can increase their own writing at home for themselves and their interests, not just as an output for the classroom.

I want to provide goodies to take home for students who may not be able to purchase these types of things for themselves, or students who wouldn’t think to do so, such as: free books, writing journals, pencils, etc. I want to make writing exciting for all students, regardless of AND including their cultural background!
