The Appalachia Regional Comprehensive Center has developed a free series of podcasts (with transcripts) and supporting materials and guides titled Parent Involvement: Keys to Success.
I haven’t had time to actually listen to any of them or read the materials yet (it’s on my “To Do” list!), but they look like they might be useful. Titles include:
Parents Support Student Progress: Send Student Achievement Goals Over the Top!
Parent Involvement: Get the Conversation Started and Keep it Going
Developing Strong Relationships with Parents: Three Things Schools Can Do to Increase Performance
Parent Involvement in Schools: Engaging Parents as Partners
Cultivating Parent Leaders
If any readers get an opportunity to check them out, please leave a comment saying what you think of them.
