Building Partnerships through Classroom-Based Events
Zacarian, Debbie; Silverstone, Michael
Educational Leadership, v75 n1 p12-18 Sep 2017
Building partnerships with families can be a challenge, especially in ethnically diverse classrooms. In this article, the authors describe how to create such partnerships with three kinds of classroom events: community-building events that deepen social relationships and make families feel welcome; curriculum showcase events that give families a better understanding of what their children are learning; and events that draw on families' rich resources by inviting family members to share their experiences and expertise.
