Practice-Based Methods for Family and Community Involvement
This 3 session course with online components provides teachers with strategies to increase student learning by developing strong partnerships with their families and the school’s community. Participants learn about the Framework for 6 Types of Family and Community Involvement (Parenting, Communicating, Volunteering, Learning at Home, Decision-Making, and Collaborating) and how to utilize it in their practice. Attendees will learn how and why to involve family members (and guardians and caregivers) as partners with both school and home-based activities; how to break the barriers that hinder family and community involvement in school; strategies for 2-way interactive communication with families that advance student learning; and why and how to be responsive to families and their cultures and needs. Teachers also learn to effectively engage more community stakeholders in their instruction, how and where to seek community resources, and ways to best make use of them. This offering is aligned with the CPS Framework for Teaching Components 4c and 4d.
