A Cord of Three Strands A New Approach to Parent Engagement in Schools

A Cord of Three Strands A New Approach to Parent Engagement in Schools

Author: Soo Hong Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 10/11/2019

How can low-income, non-English-speaking parents become advocates, leaders, and role models in their children's schools? A Cord of Three Strands offers a close study of the Logan Square Neighborhood Association, a grassroots organisation on the northwest side of Chicago, whose work on parent engagement has drawn national attention. The author identifies three elements-induction, integration, and investment-that together capture the dynamic and developmental nature of successful parent engagement. Writing with both optimism and urgency, author Soo Hong offers richly detailed portraits of parents' experiences and addresses the complex and sometime conflicting relationships among school, family, and community.

Problem-Solving Parent Conferences in Schools Ecological-Behavioral Perspectives

Problem-Solving Parent Conferences in Schools Ecological-Behavioral Perspectives

Author: Dennis J. (Loyola University of Chicago, USA) Simon Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 13/08/2019

Problem-Solving Parent Conferences in Schools presents a Problem-solving Parent Conference (PPC) model that integrates and applies empirically-supported systemic and behavioral intervention strategies to coordinated home-school interventions for student behavioral and social-emotional concerns. Though today's schools seek to further understand student behaviors from ecological and systemic perspectives, there are limited resources available on how to effectively collaborate with families-a key social-environmental context. This unique book engages parents and teachers in a five-stage protocol towards more effective student support. These evidence-based, change-oriented approaches will be essential for graduate students in school psychology, school social work, and school counseling programs; in teacher preparation; and in any related course focused on parents and families in school settings. Its resources are also critical for mental health practitioners who work with children, adolescents, families, and schools.
