Making Positive Connections with Homeschoolers. By Request Series.
Fager, Jennifer; Brewster, Cori
This booklet is the 13th in a series of "hot topic" reports produced by the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory. These reports briefly address current educational concerns and issues as indicated by requests for information that come to the laboratory from the Northwest region and beyond. Each booklet contains a discussion of research and literature pertinent to the issue, a sampling of how Northwest schools are addressing the issue, suggestions for adapting these ideas to schools, selected references, and contact information. This booklet takes a look at what has been learned so far about school-homeschool cooperation and offers tips and suggestions for building successful partnerships with homeschooling families. The Northwest Sampler profiles several different Northwest school systems that have implemented programs to reach out to students who are learning at home and that have worked to accommodate homeschoolers' requests for involvement.(Contains 29 references.)
