Summary

Being a successful early child educator requires fostering strong relationships with families of the children you teach, as well as the community in which you teach. FAMILIES, SCHOOLS, AND COMMUNITIES: TOGETHER FOR YOUNG CHILDREN, 4TH EDITION, is a comprehensive resource that reflects current research and best practices in education, and is written to meet national standards in teacher preparation programs. Divided into two sections, this book addresses the contemporary issues faced by families, and the skills required to foster their involvement in children's education. Partnerships with communities and families are stressed throughout, and supported by effective ideas and strategies for increasing family involvement in the community and schools. Content on math, literacy, science, and social studies is included to further foster family involvement in education. There is also information about working with military families, addressing issues of childhood obesity, and teaching children about financial literacy and money management. New content includes more historical information on the family, a feature highlighting specific ways to incorporate the family, and expanded information on family strengths and community development.
