Everyday Engagement: Making Students and Parents Your Partners in Learning
Ridnouer, Katy
While there are lots of books about how to engage students more effectively in the classroom, here at last is a book that also makes engaging parents part of a solution to higher student achievement. Top-selling ASCD (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) author and classroom teacher Katy Ridnouer explains what you need to do to lay the groundwork for student-parent engagement and roll out a year-long strategy that keeps students in class, behavior in check, and learning on track: (1) How to invite students and parents to engage; (2) What to do when your invitations are rejected; and (3) Ways to tap outside resources to extend learning into the home and community. Explore pro-engagement action and attitudes that help you embed student-parent engagement into everyday practice, including: (1) Effective push-backs to the typical excuses for failure; (2) Communication routines that draw in disaffected students and parents; (3) Ways to match student and parent activity to student and parent interests; and (4) Steps for getting parents to support their children's work ethic and improve their attitude toward learning.
