For courses in Parents/Home-School Relations in Early Childhood Education
Engaging families in children’s education through partnerships and collaboration.
This is the most comprehensive book on the market covering the history of family/school collaboration, current issues and population trends affecting American schools and communities, diverse family structures, and techniques for establishing connections with parents and encouraging involvement with their child’s learning. Among other themes, the book emphasizes the importance of funds of knowledge for children’s development and for effective partnerships with families (the knowledge that children acquire from their families). This edition also adds the concept of funds of identity as a catalyst for educators to understand their own identity. Throughout the book the authors make connections to these concepts not only to help educators understand child development, but also to show how children develop within the context of their families. This edition also continues to highlight important parent involvement programs and how such programs are often successful because of an asset-based view of families, particularly of those that are culturally and linguistically diverse, as well as those with children with special needs. The Enhanced Pearson eText for the new edition provides interactive, embedded learning aids designed to ensure comprehension of the material presented through videos, learning objectives, Check Your Comprehension quizzes, Apply Your Knowledge links, Reflect and Analyze links, and additional teaching and learning features geared to promoting effective collaboration with parents and schools in the education of all children.
