Learning Center Experience
By Masica Jordan, Adjunct Faculty, College of Social and Behavioral Sciences
Life has a way of challenging you
to grow. The roles, career paths,
friends, family, and community services that we become involved in help to
shape us and make us grow. Recently, I have been challenged to grow in my role
as an early literacy program coordinator, treatment services coordinator, and
new mother, as I have been challenged to take a look at early
literacy and how to create the best learning environment to promote early
literacy for my 9-month-old son. It has been a pleasure being a national early
coordinator for a program that reaches children of all ages in a variety of
settings. I also serve full time as a treatment services coordinator for a substance
abuse program that provides clinical and educational services for adult men
in recovery. In my role as a treatment
services coordinator I oversee an independent learning program helping men
in recovery who come in with clinical needs and literacy deficits. Some of the
men are age 40 or older, and cannot read or write their names. Most of these
men never received the benefit of a learning environment that promoted early
literacy and began their formal
education with a deficit in comparison to their peers.
After working with
these men and as an early literacy program coordinator, I understood the
importance of creating an early literacy environment and fortunately I knew how
to create one for my son. I have created five recommendations parents can use
to help cultivate an early literacy environment.
recommendations are just a start. There are tons of ways to help create an early
literacy environment for children. However, parents need to remember to
make reading enjoyable and an every day part of life for their children. This
is one of the best ways to help children start strong and provide a lasting
