Could Giving Parents Homework Help Students? Schools Try ‘Family Playlists’

Could Giving Parents Homework Help Students? Schools Try ‘Family Playlists’ | Education, Curiosity, and Happiness | Scoop.it

"Joyce Epstein, a researcher at Johns Hopkins University and the founder of the Hopkins-based National Network of Partnership Schools, has devoted years to honing a program called TIPS, or Teachers Involve Parents in Schoolwork. The idea behind TIPs is to create a systematic style of homework assignments that requires students to teach or share their work with their families."

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:
Forming relationships with parents provides two-way benefits. For parents, it helps them help their children. For teachers, they gain insight into the families and children. James Comer has led the way with work in this area. Anthony Bryk found increased relational trust in schools where parents felt they were part of their children's learning.

By David Witt. By sharpening your knowledge about the impact trust has on work intentions, you can better design an environment where individuals trust their leaders, stay, endorse, and behave in ways that benefit the organization.

Five takeaways from a new study of New York City’s massive ‘community schools’ program

Five takeaways from a new study of New York City’s massive ‘community schools’ program | Education, Curiosity, and Happiness | Scoop.it
How is this costly and complex experiment working?
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:
The report and I assume the research focuses on the role of administrators in community schools. This is well and fine. Anthony Bryk in his research on relational trust found good administrators bridge what is happening in the community and in classrooms.

An essential take away for me was that staff turn over can have negative impacts on community schools.
