Home, School, and Community Collaboration: Culturally Responsive Family Involvement addresses developing skills and understandings in the area of family engagement for the K-12 new teacher. This text provides a research base that focuses on the family support model and other current theories on family involvement and promotes cultural sensitivity and communication. Family involvement practitioners have clearly articulated the need for the jump from theory into practice in preparing new K-12 teachers to effectively partner with families. Home, School, and Community Collaboration provides opportunities for classroom-based strategies coupled with teaching tips that can be utilized to support emerging family involvement efforts. Numerous family scenarios provide opportunities for analysis and reflection. Real-life family vignettes will be used throughout the text to help illustrate major points. The traditional topics found in a core family involvement text are presented through a role enhancement model. Comprehensive chapters help the new teacher organize the classroom to promote maximum family involvement. The text also features current issues in family involvement including topics on the overworked parent, gang awareness and parental influence, and working with teen parents, immigrant families, fathers, among other topics. Moreover, this core textbook strives to heighten teacher sensitivity while working with children from poverty, homeless families, and families impacted by violence. The ultimate goal of the text is to promote the understanding, appreciation, and support of all families to prepare K-12 teachers to effectively partner with classroom families.
