Learning outside of the School Classroom: What Teachers Can Do to Involve Family in Supporting Classroom Instruction. A Strategy Brief of the National Center for Family and Community Connections with Schools
National Center for Family and Community Connections with Schools
Teachers are a vital part of student achievement, a fact that is reinforced in the "Highly Qualified Teachers" section of the No Child Left Behind Act. However, in order to be effective and meet the needs of each student, teachers have to draw on all available resources. Though it is natural to think of these resources as school-based, in reality, family and community members are also viable resources. Many teachers are struggling to find ways to provide students the individualized instruction they need. One resource often left untapped is family involvement in learning outside of the school classroom. This paper presents actions teachers can do to involve family in supporting classroom instruction.
