Getting along with the Grown-Ups
Cerra, Cheli; Jacoby, Ruth
Instructor, v115 n2 p45-48 Sep 2005
Getting along with parents can sometimes be tough, but a little tact can go a long way. Good communication skills are important in any profession, but for the successful teacher, they are essential. Drawn from their new book, "Teacher Talk!" (Jossey-Bass, 2005), the authors present some snapshots of typical conflicts with parents, paired with action plans to help teachers head off potential problems before they arise or successfully deal with them if they do. As teachers practice these skills and become a better communicator, they will find parents responding more positively to their confidence, abilities, and willingness to establish a friendly rapport.
