Earlier this year, I published The Best Student Projects That Need Family Engagement — Contribute Your Lessons! over at my parent engagement blog.
I heard from a number of teachers sharing projects they have their students do that include some kind of specific family involvement, ranging from interviews to collecting bugs. You can read about them over at that list.
I thought I’d put out another call to readers who might have missed it then, or who are new readers of this blog.
So if you do any kind of student project with a family component, please leave a comment on this post and I’ll add it to that list!
As an art teacher, I invite student’s families (and school faculty members) to our critiques at the end of a major unit or project! Students get to know other faculty, especially administration, parents are welcomed into the classroom, and it brings a sense of community to everyone involved!
