About this title


No Spanish? No Problem! The Parent/Teacher Kon-ver-SAY-shun Kit is a quick and easy way to talk to your students' Spanish-speaking parents--without knowing Spanish! The kit is a reference tool to help Pre-K through 12 educators communicate directly with Spanish-speaking parents about their child's progress in school. Increased communication improves parent involvement. The kit includes eight scripts on common schools issues in English, Spanish, and the phonetic pronunciation of the Spanish. This resource manual helps classroom teachers, principals, counselors, and other school administrators hold a basic conversation with a parent without actually knowing Spanish. It is a shortcut that lets you build rapport with parents in order to get them more involved in their child's education. No preparation or knowledge of Spanish is necessary and the kit shows immediate results. It is designed to help you approach families in a way that makes cultural sense, rather than focusing solely on the language. This is a non-consumable, color-coded flipchart on a sturdy stand. It comes with an erasable marker to write-on and wipe-off as needed and is especially helpful in bridging the communication gap during parent-teacher conferences. Topics include parent-teacher conferences, homework, attendance and missed assignments, computers, reading, helping your child at home, and more. Worried about parents responding to your overtures in Spanish? Pages 7 and 8 of the kit provide you with everything you need to know to handle the situation. The kit also includes cultural tips and a glossary. In addition to saving you time and energy and increasing parent involvement, the kit helps improve your school's Adequate Yearly Progress.
