Summary

Families, Schools and Communities: Together for Young Children is the best resource available for understanding how to implement family involvement programs and to support families with young children, leading to strong schools and communities. Since evidence continues to grow that family involvement in schools supports children?s success, this is a valuable resource for pre-service and in-service teachers, administrators and programs. The text presents current research and best practices in a reader-friendly format that puts practical application within easy reach. It uses a number of techniques for imparting this information to the reader. A new on-line resource features topical issues discussed by parents and family members, adding emotion from real-life family events to the context. A new case study focusing on standardized testing in grades K-3 brings more meaning to this subject than is generally presented in other formats. And, a wealth of recommended Web sites relevant to specific chapters are listed in sidebars for easy reference.
