Bartone, Michael
Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education, v7 n1 p91-95 Sum 2010
Going to where students and their families live, play, and socialize is one way of creating personalized relationships. In the author's years of teaching he has always found it is the little things that make a huge impact on all the lives of people involved. By incorporating a real life cultural application piece, teacher education programs can give students the tools for interacting, understanding, and better serving the diverse groups of children they will likely encounter in their classes. The kind of training described in this article has the potential to facilitate a stronger relationship between new teachers and their students' families. A strong partnership between teachers, students, and students' families can have a positive impact on the students' and families' engagement in the education process. In this article, the author shares some ideas for teacher education programs.
