Overview

Both teachers and parents understand the need to establish a strong, balanced partnership. Easier said than done! What can a teacher do to get parents more involved in their children's educations, yet not become meddlesome? What can parents do to help a teacher address the special needs of their child, while respecting the teacher's classroom goals and expertise? Addressing and solving these and other issues are what The Parent-Teacher Partnership is all about.

Using the National PTA's Standards for School-Family-Community Partnership as a framework, author Scott Mandel provides practical solutions for dozens of individual classroom scenarios. What is the most productive use of a parent-teacher conference? How can parents provide the best at-home environment for doing homework? Are parental rewards for classroom performance helpful or counterproductive? How can a teacher best support a student who is experiencing an at-home crisis, such as a divorce? Drawn from the real-world experiences of parents, teachers, and administrators, The Parent-Teacher Partnership focuses on communication, parenting skills, classroom volunteering, mutual respect, and more. Even school administrators will find this book helpful for resolving conflicts or heading off disputes before they arise.
