About the Barbara Bush Fellowships at TCALL
Barbara Bush Fellows originated at TCALL in 2007, with funding from The Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy. The Barbara Bush Fellows at TCALL engage in research, writing, and development of resources and presentations in topics relevant to the field of family literacy education, while enrolled as doctoral students at Texas A&M University.
For purposes of this research Fellowship, FAMILY LITERACY is defined as a multi-generational educational approach that includes at least three integrated components: adult literacy education for parent(s) or primary caregiver(s), pre-literacy or literacy instruction for their young children, and interactive literacy activities for the young children together with their parent(s) or primary caregiver(s). Many family literacy programs also include parenting education and home-based literacy activities.
