Abstract or Summary
  • In this qualitative study, ethnographic methods were used to identify parent funds of knowledge related to ocean literacy in a rural, coastal context. Participants included 16 parents of students in the teacher-researcher's third-grade classroom. Interactions between parent-child, parent-parent, and parent and the teacher-researcher were studied in order to determine factors that influence home-school partnership. Data collection occurred through (1) artifacts resulting from parent-child activities during three Ocean Literacy Family Nights, (2) parent study groups, and (3) in-depth interviews with six focal parents. Grounded theory methods were used to code and analyze the data. Study findings suggest that a funds of knowledge approach to building ocean literacy is an effective means of building home-school partnership as well as a sense of community among parents of diverse backgrounds. This is supported by parent response to (1) the process of accessing parent funds of knowledge related to ocean literacy, (2) their shared experience in a different kind of family night, and (3) exploration of the interactions that occurred through study activities. Implications for future research using a funds of knowledge approach and for humanizing home-school partnership are presented.
