Her project focuses on adults’ English language and literacy, children’s bilingual literacy, and family literacy activities. Cooper has created a project where university faculty, school teachers, and community partners host 12-week Saturday classes starting in the fall. The goals of these classes are to increase familial English language proficiency, which will enhance employability, and develop stronger self-efficacy for children.
