Teaching Together: Family Engagement that Empowers Diverse Learners
This Lunch & Learn session focused on family engagement in early childhood grades of preschool to first grade. Empowering families as partners in their children’s education support team opens opportunities for schools and families to work together to extend learning to the home environment.
During this session, we shared recent research on evidence-based practices for schools and strategies that have been shown to positively impact partnerships between schools and families. Tricia Zucker, PhD, Co-Director of CLI, led this session with fellow researcher, Keisey Fumero, PhD, SLP to discuss some of CLI’s recent family engagement research, known as Teaching Together, and resources that can be freely accessed on the CLI Engage platform. We also shared how schools can access resources and participate in our latest family engagement study to continue expanding this important field of research.
