Family engagement benefits students in many ways. Stronger family ties and increased parental involvement results in greater academic success, higher self-esteem and resilience, a strong growth mindset, and less stress. Busy work schedules, daily life stressors, increased use of technology, and differences in family structures and socioeconomic status affect how families are able to engage with their children, their children’s schools, and other families.
This course will provide participants with the tools they need to offer families support and ideas on how to become more engaged with those around them. Participants will read and conduct their own research to determine the level of family engagement in their school community, and then they will apply their findings to develop a family engagement package of activities, resources, and learning opportunities to give families the tools they need to be more engaged with others. At the end of the course, participants will design ways to evaluate the success of their ideas and make a plan to extend and share their work on family engagement in the future.
