ECE 244 Parent-Teacher Communications and Partnerships

Students develop knowledge and skills in understanding and building partnerships with parents based on the recognition that families have diverse styles of parenting. Building increased awareness and sensitivity to ethnic, racial, class, abilities, and linguistic issues is key to the affirmation of differences. Students study contemporary models and practices that support the involvement of parents in their child's education. Students learn to use appropriate oral and written communications, discover parents' priorities, and design activities and structures for ongoing collaborations with parents. Prerequisite: ECE 111.
