Families, Schools, and Communities: Building Partnerships for Educating Children
Pearson/Merrill Prentice Hall, 2008 - Education - 412 pages
For courses in Parent/Home-School Relations in Early Childhood Education. A basic tenet of Families, Schools, & Communities: Building Partnerships for Educating Children is that schools will always be a primary venue for educating the young child, and educators must be in the forefront of any endeavor to bring about change. This text, whose perspective is based largely on the ecological theory of child development, provides the information and strategies that enable pre-service teachers to develop vibrant partnerships--uniting parents and community members with the school to educate and support young children. Schools are where the action will bloom, but respectful collaboration is the key to success. This text includes the community influence in most chapters, unlike other similar texts.
