Effective School-Home Partnerships
Real-world Parent-Teacher Video Scenarios + Competency-based Professional Learning
There is a greater need than ever for parents and teachers to team up around student learning and well being. Neither one can do it alone.
Learning Heroes and Technology Access Foundation (TAF) created a Professional Learning series that equips educators to prioritize building trust with families and sharing data more effectively as part of co-creating learning plans that accelerate learning especially due to the missed instruction during the pandemic.
Filling an Urgent Need
- Model Authentic Parent-Teacher Relationship Building: Eight videos (in English & Spanish) with effective and ineffective examples.
- Address Bias: Strategies for two-way communication based on trust and through an asset-based and equity lens that tackles bias and racism.
- Peer-to-Peer Practice and Reflection: Support “learning” as well as “unlearning” where needed. This work often requires a mindset shift to see parents as allies.
