Read article at Massey Research Online: MRO icon

Mrs Jackson used a participatory method to develop and investigate the impact of a collaborative approach to reading improvement. Reading support strategies were developed in partnership with parents. This enabled individualised approaches to be designed which linked child assessment data, existing home literacy practices and research led literacy instruction. Parents were supported to implement the strategies through an iterative coaching process. The findings revealed factors which enhanced and inhibited the effectiveness of collaboration, the particulars of parental enactment of reading support, and the impact of parental reading support on the children''sreading skills. Her research presented a new way of conceptualising an intervention as a collaborative endeavour. She proposed a new term, home based pedagogy, to describe the way that family aspirations, priorities and practices together with research can be used to augment learning.
