The Secondary Literacy Guide for Families was made with New Mexico families in mind. This guide aims to help families support their middle and high school children’s reading and writing development at home. It explains important literacy skills needed to be college and career ready and provides simple literacy activities families can do with their children. The guide also provides questions for parents and caretakers to learn about their child’s progress in school and partner together for their child’s success. This guide is available in both English and Spanish.
