Literate Identities Parent Survey (LIPS)

Participate in the Literate Identities Parent Survey (LIPS)

Welcome to the Literate Identities Parent Survey (LIPS). This study explores how elementary grade children (PK-5) develop literate identities. Literate identities are who children are as readers and writers. Children's literate identities play an important role in how they learn to read and write. This study will help teachers to better understand children’s literacy development and support better literacy instruction in schools. Please continue reading for more information about this study.
