Scenario 5 | Education homework help

 To create a realistic plan for family engagement in your school that  takes into account potential barriers and to evaluate your plan. 


Your student  teaching experiences convinced you of the benefits for everyone when  schools and families make a commitment to each other to work together.  You have several ideas for supporting family engagement in your  classroom. You are aware, however, of particular attitudes between  parents and teachers that may create barriers to working together (e.g.,  lack of childcare, families feeling intimidated by authority figures).  You decide to write down three-parent attitudes about participation in  school events that may become an obstacle. Next, you consider three  emotional responses from parents and teachers that may also cause  barriers (e.g., painful memories of school experiences, disillusioning  experiences with professionals). Last, you write about three external  factors (e.g., busy schedules, outdated ideas) that can undermine parent  relationships. Then, you give each potential barrier careful thought as  to how you will try to prevent it.
