Feedback form is now closed.
This workshop shares the results of our research study on Latino/a families' home educational practices and provides strategies that reframe deficit perspectives to facilitate family engagement in culturally relevant ways. We will analyze survey data expressing Latino/a families’ views towards parents’ and teachers’ responsibility for children’s education and the perceived willingness of educators to engage collaboratively with culturally and linguistically diverse families. We will then share strategies for encouraging better collaboration between home and school.
