This practical, comprehensive text is an indispensable guide for home-school-community collaborations. HOME, SCHOOL, & COMMUNITY RELATIONS, 9th Edition, meets the needs of teachers and administrators who desire to create effective, culturally-competent partnerships with diverse families, and helps to prepare future teachers for their careers. It provides an overview of modern families and their complex roles and beliefs to sensitize teachers to the diversity and needs of families they will encounter, including multilingual, multiethnic, multigenerational, and gender-diverse families from different socioeconomic backgrounds. The text fully discusses both the benefits of creating productive partnerships and the barriers that teachers must overcome. Abundant examples clarify the book's practical and effective communication strategies. Current developments in the field of early childhood education are emphasized, including brain research and development, legislative mandates in education, professional standards of the field, and strategies for working with families of students with diverse learning needs.
