Want parents involved at secondary with awesome results for all?
HIT HERE FOR VIDEO DESCRIPTION OF THIS PRODUCT
Research shows that when even a few parents get involved in classes all students in that class benefit!
Here are tasks will get you started. When I first began bringing parents on-board, I was warned that few would come. Soon, I realized that many parents appreciate partnering in their teen’s learning ventures when they are welcomed.
You may assume as some still do, that secondary school parents won’t come.
You’ll be glad to know that’s myth. In fact these materials show just how much secondary, and even university parents will add to your learning circle.
So why do most parents of upper level learners stay away?
Research shows why parents stay away.
When they feel they don’t know enough about the curriculum, when they cannot see value in their offering, or when they feel they’re unwelcome, many parents avoid secondary schools.
Find in these materials user-ready tasks that welcome parents on board
to help with students’ progress, contribute to an interactive, digital newsletter, Help to chart their children’s progress and make suggestions for growth, and share their suggestions through student-led interviews.
All the best as you learn and lead with parents’ brains more in mind!
