In the first section of your paper, respond as if you were a parent of a student in the class. Summarize what you would expect from the teacher.
In the second section of your paper, respond as if you were the principal/administrator of the teacher and describe how you would sway this teacher to understand the importance of a family/school partnership. Include the following in your plan:
- Provide at least three suggestions to encourage the teacher to make positive change.
- Create a list or chart of resources you would suggest to this teacher. At least two of these resources must support your suggestions to encourage positive family/school partnerships. If you use an outside source be sure to give proper credit as per APA guidelines for crediting charts and tables.
- State three additional ways to support this teacher in deepening his/her understanding of the importance of a family/school partnership.
