EDU 599 Collaborative Teaching: Family Collaboration, Communication, and Community Relationships

3 Credits

When families, community, and school staff work together to support student learning, the results are powerful! Effective collaboration among these groups can yield results that mutually support each segment of the education community, especially the students. In this course, the complex characteristics of family units and communities are studied. Students, then, utilize that knowledge to create and sustain respectful, reciprocal relationships which support, empower, and involve families at all levels of their children’s development and learning. Students also develop strategies to increase family and community involvement in their schools and learn communicative processes between parents and professionals who work with students with disabilities in all areas of collaborative involvement.
