Preparing Educators to Engage Families

Case Studies Using an Ecological Systems Framework

by Heather B. Weiss, M. Elena Lopez, Holly M. Kreider,

Constant changes in education are creating new and uncertain roles for parents and teachers that must be explored, identified, and negotiated. Preparing Educators to Engage Families: Case Studies Using an Ecological Systems Framework, Third Edition encourages readers to hone their analytic and problem-solving skills for use in real-world situations with students and their families.

Organized according to Ecological Systems Theory (of the micro, meso, exo, macro, and chrono systems), this completely updated Third Edition presents research-based teaching cases that reflect critical dilemmas in family-school-community relations, especially among families for whom poverty and cultural differences are daily realities. The text looks at family engagement issues across the full continuum, from the early years through pre-adolescence.
