CREATIVE FATHERHOOD BEHIND BARS: THE READ TO YOUR CHILD PROGRAM

PATERNIDADE CRIATIVA ATRÁS DAS GRADES: O PROGRAMA LEIA PARA SEU FILHO OU FILHA

Palavras-chave: Educação em prisões, Letramento familiar, Pais encarcerados, Pais e mães encarceradas

Resumo

Mais da metade de pessoas encarceradas nos Estados Unidos são pais/mães de crianças menores. Programas de letramento familiar e de leitura em voz alta não apenas proporcionam a esses pais e mães maneiras de se conectarem e se comunicarem com suas crianças, mas também encorajam a aprendizagem e o desenvolvimento da letramento através de meios criativos. Contudo, são escassas as pesquisas sobre tais programas. Este artigo apresenta uma análise de um programa de letramento familiar em uma prisão agrícola no estado da Pensilvânia. Utilizando dados qualitativos, as autoras descrevem o programa Leia para seu(sua) filho(a)/neto(a) (cuja sigla em inglês é RYCG) e as experiências dos 11 pais que dele participaram no outono de 2018. O artigo examina como o programa preenche lacunas entre pais e crianças na comunicação, presença física e desenvolvimento do letramento; os benefícios especiais que os componentes do programa proporcionam aos participantes; e os atos de criatividade e as criações dos pais em um contexto restrito de encarceramento.
