The home-school connection is important to student literacy achievement.

However, it can be time-consuming to develop and implement programming that keeps families engaged and involved.

Empowering Families makes it easier to accomplish these goals!

Chock-full of step-by-step plans for arranging a variety of parent/caregiver meetings and literacy booster events, the book enables educators to get families involved in their children's learning in ways that are fun and non-intimidating.

By hosting these events at your school, you'll be empowering families to... read aloud to their children at home; minimize the summer slide; encourage male involvement in literacy; help their children avoid homework hassles; and much, much more!

Bonus: The book includes ready-to-use handouts for your events, such as announcement sheets, follow-up evaluations, and tipsheets that describe ways parents can reinforce literacy at home.

These handouts are photocopiable and the tipsheets are also available for easy download from our website at

Spanish versions of the tipsheets are available on our website as well.
