Unlocking Families' Potential: A Conversation with Karen L. Mapp
Thiers, Naomi
Educational Leadership, v75 n1 p40-44 Sep 2017
Karen L. Mapp--former Deputy Superintendent for Family and Community Engagement for Boston's schools and noted researcher and author on how schools can partner with families--talks with "EL" editor Naomi Thiers on the need to approach engaging family caregivers in students' learning in a new way, starting with emphasizing active engagement, not just "parent involvement." Her main takeaway: The key ingredient in creating a true partnership between families and school personnel is for each family-related activity to be linked to specific overall goals for student learning.
