Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education, v1 n2 p1-6 Fall 2002
Describes what the Tellin' Stories Project (TSP) Action Research Team discovered about meaningful family involvement during a 3-year study of teachers', students', and parents' stories of meaningful family roles. The TSP uses the power of story to engage parents, primarily from diverse low-income backgrounds, as purposeful partners in education. Notes eight findings (e.g., developing relationships between families and school staff that emphasize child and family wellbeing). (SM)
