This is a parent communique I sent home to rave reviews from parents, other teachers, and administrators. My department head chose to highlight this idea to the entire department.
The basic idea is for students to take home a letter and a piece of work they have chosen to share with their parents. Attached is my letter in a WORD format so you can change it to fit your classroom.
The preview contains some parent and student feedback that may be helpful to you. This is a GREAT way to communicate at the high school level.
