Family Engagement in Early Childhood: A Resource Guide for Early Learning Challenge Grant Recipients
Harvard Family Research Project
In 2011, the U.S. Department of Education invited states to apply for the Race to the Top--Early Learning Challenge (RTTT-ELC) to help states' efforts in supporting young children and their families through the development of more unified early learning systems, better information sharing among educators, and an increase in access to quality early learning and development programs. Part of the RTTT-ELC application also encouraged states to focus more resources on family engagement in early childhood. Harvard Family Research Project has developed this resource guide to support RTTT-ELC grant recipients' efforts in this area. The first round of RTTT-ELC grant winning states was announced in December 2011, and now must begin the challenging work of implementing their ELC proposals. To support these states--along with any other states, districts, and local programs interested in expanding their family engagement work--Harvard Family Research Project (HFRP) produced this selective list of resources about engaging and supporting families with young children. It is hoped that this list of journal articles, practical guides, webinars, and presentations will be useful for those interested in strengthening their programs and partnerships with families.
