Accessible and focused, this book offers dozens of easy-to-implement, research-based strategies teachers can use to get families involved in their child's literacy development. Beginning with the most important research, this book translates proven family involvement techniques into workable strategies for fostering literacy development. An early chapter captures family involvement strategies that can be implemented at the classroom level–such as vocabulary development activities, read to your child routines, and a family involvement homework calendar. A follow-up chapter focuses on effective school-wide family involvement programs–from easy first steps to effective parent volunteer initiatives. Focused coverage includes discussion of high-impact assessment techniques, as well as conversation-starting questions that work with book clubs, professional learning communities, and professional development workshops.
