Involving Fathers

profilehotiev

 

Read the article Fathers' role in children's academic achievement and early literacy. Develop a learning activity that supports the involvement of fathers in the childcare setting. The activity can take place before, during, or after normal childcare hours. Identify how fathers will be encouraged to attend, and discuss the role of the father in supporting the child’s academic achievements. Consider activities that would interest fathers, review the four barriers to getting men involved in preschool programs (Gonzales-Mena, 2014, p. 73-75), and review research supporting the involvement of fathers in supporting a child’s academic achievement (article by Gadsden & Ray). In the father’s absence, encourage the involvement of another significant family member (grandparent, uncle, and so forth).


Please ensure the assignment is at least 250 words.
