Involving Parents in Their Children's Learning

This book explores a wide range of tools -- take-home information and materials, parent conferences, learning nights, and digital and social media -- for teachers to use in establishing and maintaining the parent-teacher relationship, one that holds the child at the center of all education decisions.
