Learning to Fly: Family-oriented Literacy Education in Schools

  • September 2014

To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Hamburg’s award-winning Family Literacy project (FLY) (2010 winner of the UNESCO King Sejong Literacy Prize and 2011 winner of the Hamburg Education Prize), UIL and the Hamburg State Institute for Teacher Training and School Development (LI) are launching the publication Learning to Fly: Family-oriented Literacy Education in Schools (in English and German). This co-publication includes contributions from key stakeholders – academics, teachers, parents and children – participating in the conceptualization and implementation of FLY in the city of Hamburg. FLY mainly targets people from socially disadvantaged communities and applies an intergenerational approach to learning.
