You have read Chapters 11-13 in your text and reflected on diverse backgrounds, discipline, and parental involvement. For this task, reflect on what you have learned about parental involvement and academic success. Write an e-newsletter and design a tri-fold brochure suitable for fathers/grandfathers exploring various ways schools across America are involving fathers/grandfathers in school activities and suggest tips for becoming more involved in their young child’s or grandchild’s school experiences. Incorporate the following into the e-newsletter:
*Reasons for collaboration between fathers/grandfathers and schools.
*Include visuals that illustrate father/grandfather involvement.
*Discuss family-centered teaching and guidelines that teachers can follow to encourage father/grandfather participation.
*Provide practical tips for fathers/grandfathers to follow in order to become more involved in their young child’s or grandchild’s educational experiences. (Don’t be afraid to provide basic advice. Direct involvement may be a new territory for many men.)
