Encouraging parents to become involved is the first step toward bringing parents and educators closer together on behalf of their English Learners. From organizing workshops for parents to developing classroom language learning assignments that include families, the process to boost involvement takes commitment—and an action plan.
In this edWebinar, we will discuss the six categories of parental involvement and how educators can incorporate those categories into an effective action plan. We’ll highlight best practices and real-world examples we have seen from districts around the country, and together, we will review common roadblocks and discuss how to overcome the challenges they represent. We will also break down the action plan to help participants begin to incorporate action steps—and ideas on what to do if it falls off track. Come prepared to share your ideas as well!
This presentation will continue the conversation from Part 1: Involve Parents for Greater English Learner Success. Participants will have the opportunity to create an action plan (template provided) to use in their own program and share with colleagues.
This edWebinar will be of interest to preK-12 teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the presentation. Learn from real-world examples of how other schools incorporate family engagement into their schools.
