Capstone Project Title
Dr. Karen Moroz
Creating an environment that is conducive for learning is an essential component of education. In search of ways to achieve this goal through family engagement the question was posed, How can educators effectively communicate with families to empower them to take an active role in their child’s learning? Research has demonstrated that there is a link between student success and teacher-parent partnerships through one way and two way communication methods. The project involved creating a set of resources for educators to foster and maintain teacher-parent partnerships with the goal being student success. The resources are accompanied by a professional development session to provide educators with the rationale and motivation for the resources to be utilized. The goal of the project is to give elementary school teachers the tools they need to successfully connect with parents to create strong partnerships for students' social and academic success.
