Culturally Responsive Family-School Relationships, Second Edition, is a unique text with a fresh perspective. It presents a successful collaborative approach for working with all students' families to promote learning and resolve problems throughout the early childhood and elementary school years. The underlying premise is that teachers who embrace and adapt to shifting realities can work toward true partnerships between culturally diverse communities and the schools that serve them. Taking into account economic and cultural diversity as well as exceptionality, the text thoroughly describes culturally-responsive instructional and non-instructional practices that educators can use to build family-school relationships characterized by trust, cooperation and motivation to help all children succeed in school. Grounded in research, this book balances theory and application by discussing conceptual issues and linking them to methods educators can use--making it an essential resource for all school-based practitioners, including school administrators, school counselors, and special education consultants.
