Good two-way communication between families and schools is necessary for students' success. Not surprisingly, research shows that the more parents and teachers share relevant information with each other about a student, the better equipped both will be to help that student achieve academically. Opportunities for two-way communication include: (1) Parent conferences; (2) Parent-teacher organizations or school community councils; (3) Weekly or monthly folders of student work sent home for parent review and comment; (4) Phone calls; and (5) E-mail or school Web site. This paper presents ideas for building parent-teacher partnerships. (less)

Effective teachers share not only quantifiable and tangible traits, but also several intangible personality traits that, together, determine their impact in the classroom. By focusing only on the tangible traits that show up in a teacher’s resumé, schools may be overlooking some important metrics or even using the wrong metrics to select teachers. This report reviews attributes that are central to teacher effectiveness. (less)

This resource guide begins by outlining the theory underlying the literacy work and then lays out the framework for the supports included in the Readers series.

Although most of the strategies can be used in multiple ways, we have chosen to present them as occurring ŕBefore€During€and After ReadingĚŇ because of the importance of this mental model in effective content literacy instruction.

PICS is the only college-selection software program that ASSESSES a student's personality and then DETERMINES the ideal characteristics of a college suited to the individual. This is not an inventory in which a student indicates preferred student body size, living environment and campus attitudes. In fact, there are very few questions related to college at all. Instead, PICS evaluates each answer to the set of paired questions and then provides a profile of the kind of college or university the student should consider. (less)

Help you students parents know how to best communicate with you and the school. Parents of children receiving special education services are more than likely to be very involved with the child's school and teacher — including planning, reviewing, and assessing your child's educational program. We hope these "Steps to Success" will be particularly helpful to parents who are new to the special education process. (less)

The effective teacher performs many functions that can be organized into three major roles: (1) making wise choices about the most effective instruction strategies to employ, (2) designing classroom curriculum to facilitate student learning, and (3) making effective use of classroom management techniques (Marzano, Pickering, & Pollock, 2001). This module will help teachers become effective with a wide array of instructional strategies at their disposal, skilled at identifying and articulating the proper sequence and pacing of their content, and skilled in classroom management techniques.

Teachers, as culturally responsive classroom managers, recognize their biases and values and reflect on how these influence their expectations for behavior and their interactions with students as well as what learning looks like. They recognize that the goal of classroom management is not to achieve compliance or control but to provide all students with equitable opportunities for learning and they understand that CRCM is “classroom management in the service of social justice” (Weinstein, Tomlinson-Clarke and Curran 2004, p.27).
