Overview

"Using a framework of ecological systems theory, editors Heather B. Weiss, Holly Kreider, M. Elena Lopez, and Celina M. Chatman pair child development theory with research-based teaching cases that reflect critical dilemmas in family-school-community relations, especially among families for whom poverty and cultural differences are daily realities. The reader is encouraged to link theory and practice, and to hone their analytic and problem-solving skills for use in real-world situations with students and their families." This book is ideally suited as a text for courses in elementary education, school psychology, child development, and family studies. Professional researchers, psychologists, educators, and consultants will also find this to be a much-used desk reference.
