Developing Positive Family Collaborative Experiences

You are a beginning teacher in the preschool classroom at the local Elementary School. The principal assigned you to work with the Social Worker to focus on building positive relations between professionals and the families. Develop a news journal to support this endeavor. Discuss key components of family-professional collaboration and strategies to ensure successful implementation of each component: (a) cultural responsiveness, (b) effective communication, (c) conferences and meetings, (d) home visits, (e) ongoing support and information exchange. Provide ideas and activities to support each component.
