Research indicates that teachers and parents are essential to the academic growth and success of children; complementary attitudes are necessary for positive school-home relations; and effective collaboration is dependent on the belief that the parent-teacher relationship is a priority. In a 1,000-1,250-word paper, describe how positive, collaborative relationships with families promote the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth of children. Examine attitudes that you hold and complementary attitudes that you believe parents should hold that support positive school-home relations. Additionally, describe specific ways that, as a classroom teacher, you could foster and promote collaborative relationships with parents. Support your paper with five scholarly resources. Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
