Next February, this blog will be celebrating its ten-year anniversary! Leading up to it, I’m re-starting a series I tried to do in the past called “A Look Back.” Each week, I’ll be re-posting a few of my favorite posts from the past ten years.

In 2009, I wrote my first book, Building Parent Engagement In Schools (with Lorie Hammond).

In 2013, The Library Media Connection has just published a useful excerpt in chart from that book. It’s a one-page chart clearly highlighting the differences between parent engagement and parent involvement, and you can see it here.

If you’re interested in learning even more about those differences, you can read some other pieces I’ve written:

Involvement or Engagement? is the title of my lead article in an issue of ASCD Education Leadership.
