EDUC 4302 - Home, School, and Community♦


(5 cr.) Education professionals in this course explore the spheres of influence on school-age children and adolescents and the techniques needed to facilitate positive relationships among homes, schools, and communities to foster healthy development and learning. They explore and discuss the definition of home, school, and community; research on the benefits of partnerships; home visits and shared decision making; expectations and accountability; volunteer screening; and examples of successful educational partnerships. Applying course concepts, education professionals engage in an integrative project through which they develop a handbook of best practices for forming home, school, and community partnerships, including challenges, strategies, and potential legal and ethical issues.
