Working Respectfully with Families: A Practical Guide for Educators and Human Service Workers. Training Module III: Creating Family-Friendly Schools.
Connard, Christie; And Others
Educators and service providers often have little opportunity to work cooperatively with families to enhance outcomes for children. This document is the third in a four-part training module that was developed by Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory's Child, Family, and Community Program. The module is based on an ecological, family-centered approach to education and service delivery and is used to train state cadres in Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, and Washington. The project's goal is to help educators and human-service workers form effective and supportive partnerships with each other and with the families they serve. The module contains a training outline with procedures, activities, overhead transparencies, handouts, key articles, and a paper entitled, "The Ecology of the Family: A Background Paper for a Family-Centered Approach to Education and Social Services Delivery." This particular workshop focuses on the importance of family involvement in their children's education, with an emphasis on reaching out to hard-to-reach families. (LMI)
