Conversation Currents: Create Partnerships, Not Programs
Allen, JoBeth; Kinloch, Valerie
Language Arts, v90 n5 p385-390 May 2013
This "Conversation Currents" features JoBeth Allen and Valerie Kinloch discussing their thoughts and experiences working with families and communities. Allen bases her comments on the belief that programs have to be adaptable to many different constituencies and demographics, and so must be recreated every year with every teacher and every new group of students and their families. Kinloch agrees that building relationships leads to thinking about "how we create partnerships with different types of people that will last across long periods of time." Together they discuss how these partnerships can support literacy and engagement.
