4. Week 3 – Assignment Exploring the Role of Parents

Effective parent-school relationships begin with classroom teacher and individual parents. While parents clearly know their children best, as education professionals, classroom teachers need to take the lead in establishing and maintaining these relationships. Moreover, the most effective relationships take the form of a partnership between parent and teacher/school. This partnership arrangement is of the most benefit to the student.

In a two- to five-page paper (not including the title page and reference page), describe the steps necessary to establish and maintain an effective parent-teacher relationship through addressing the following:

  • Describe the role of parents and teachers in developing and utilizing an effective parent/teacher relationship.
  • Explain how each party knows whether or not the relationship is effective, including criteria used to determine this.
  • Describe how students benefit from this relationship.

Be sure to include at least three scholarly sources (not including your textbook), cited and referenced according to APA as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center, to support your ideas.
