Working with Families
Review the Six Types of Involvement: Keys to Successful Partnerships from the National Network of Partnership Schools. Using the terminology from this model, describe the kinds of parent and community involvement you have observed in schools or child care centers where you have worked, volunteered, or attended. If you do not have this kind of experience, visit the websites of several local child care centers and summarize the information about parent involvement that the centers have included. Also describe how these schools or centers could improve their level and type of parent and community involvement based on the NNPS model. Your initial discussion post should be at least 200 words in length.
Guided Response: Review the posts of several peers. For at least two peers, provide one or more ideas to improve parent and community involvement that they did not think of. Explain why this idea would be beneficial in supporting parent and community involvement.
