Joining Hands: Preparing Teachers To Make Meaningful Home-School Connections.
Ammon, Mary Sue, Ed.
This document describes the work of several universities to make teacher-family partnerships a high priority in teacher preparation. The case studies of several successful programs demonstrate that teacher preparation programs can undertake various approaches to help teachers develop the skills and knowledge needed to carry out their partnership roles with families. The six chapters are: "Introduction: Many Hands, Multiple Voices" (Mary Sue Ammon); "Preparing Constructivist Teachers for Parent Involvement: The Developmental Teacher Education Program" (Paul Ammon and Della Peretti); "Preparing Teachers to Serve Children and Families with Diverse Backgrounds" (Marianne D'Emidio-Caston); "Preparing Teachers to Connect Home and School: Learning About the Sociocultural Contexts of Teaching and Learning" (Paula F. Levin); "Family Involvement in Education: The Apprehensions of Student Teachers" (Peg Hartmann Winkelman); and "Preparing Educational Leaders to Work Effectively with Families: The Parent Power Project" (Deanna Evans-Schilling).
