This resource guide contains annotated Web links to recent (published in and after 2000) research, information, and tools about family involvement. Family involvement involves a broad range of constructs and this is reflected in the guide, which covers resources about parenting practices to support children's learning and development, home-school relationships, parent leadership development, and collective engagement for school improvement and reform. This guide represents the work of 126 national organizations, the majority of which are in the field of education. State and local organizations whose family involvement initiatives have gained a national reach in terms of training activities, research, and program replication are also included. Resource guide organizations are listed in an appendix.
