The Harvard family research project has put years of research into developing effective family engagement frameworks and teaching case studies. These case studies are a great resource for working with your teachers and staff to develop effective methods for community engagement. Even better, they’re available to you for FREE!
In the words of the Harvard family research project: “Teaching cases are a valuable tool in preparing teachers and school administrators to engage effectively with families. Because the case method presents a story in practice, it offers an active learning opportunity. Teaching cases involve real world situations and consider the perspectives of various stakeholders, including teachers, school leaders, parents, students, and other community members. Through case-based discussion, students enhance their critical thinking and problem-solving skills and consider multiple perspectives.”
