For two and a half years I have been studying about family engagement... there is so much great research that I could share with these teachers. I have been struggling with honing in on (only) three hours worth. What do they need MOST?
Then the answer(s) started revealing itself. As I interviewed each of the six teachers I found common themes they would like to focus on - disengaged families, language barriers, and poverty. With the research I have collected these areas may prove to support their growth in looking at how they engage families. I'm looking forward to our first session next week!
