P163-11909.1F22 - Engaging Families in Support of Student Learning

Course Details
Course Description: Without families, schools would not exist. Families send their children to school for a variety of reasons, and all families want what is best for their children. They want their children to learn and to thrive, to grow and develop, to become independent and productive people in society. It is clear, though, that families, parents and care-givers of school-age children come from a variety of backgrounds, and are diverse in terms of their thinking of how children should be educated, the role of the school and teachers, their own role in the education of their child, as well as their own experiences with schooling, the school system, and their cultural and linguistic heritage. This course will provide educators with a variety of strategies and resources designed to increase family engagement at the school and classroom levels. The course provides an opportunity for educators to analyze how the school environment welcomes all families, including considering the current effectiveness of activities designed to bring families from traditionally underrepresented groups into the school environment, potential barriers to family involvement, and ways to strengthen the current opportunities and minimize or eliminate the barriers that keep families, parents and care-givers from being involved in the educational process.
