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 www.routledge.com/9781138803114.

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