Research on school restructuring reveals the commitments and competencies that lead to improved outcomes for children, including careful attention to students' emotional development, professional development that emphasizing the reflective study of teaching, culturally responsive and inclusive teaching, and a focus on early language and literacy instruction.

Chapter 2, "A Caring Community of Learners: Creating a Protective Shield," contrasts schools organized as caring communities to the factory-model school.

The importance of positive expectations and opportunities for meaningful participation is explored in a Whittier (CA) elementary school case study.

Chapter 4, "'She Was Just as Smart Being Huy-Yon, But Her Grades Went Up When She Became Shirley," explores the impact of cultural influences one thinking, the important role of reflective self-analysis, development of cultural competence, and the creation of a culturally responsive school environment. Research on English as a second language, the structure of the language-learning environment, styles of discourse, and literacy are applied in a case study of the Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe. Chapter 5, "Learning to Read and Write," explores the barriers to literacy in poorer communities and offers several activities, programs, and strategies promoting literacy. Chapter 6, "Family/School/Community Partnerships: An Interest That Comes From the Heart," describes the common aspirations of children, the process of building effective partnerships, and school-based child and family support programs that foster resiliency and emotional intelligence.

The data consists of 135 texts from AP Newswire and Wall Street Journal, annotated with coherence relations. The source was UPenn TIPSTER"--Index.html

Building relationships for student success : school-family-community partnerships and student achievement in the Northwest by Diane Dorfman( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the research is clear that family involvement fosters student achievement, it does not clearly describe what family involvement looks like in practice. The authors of this booklet interviewed parents and other family members, teachers, and administrators at four elementary schools and two secondary schools in Oregon and Montana that are known for their strong family-involvement practices. They were asked about what was done to support their children's education, what expectations they had of the children, how family involvement was developed and implemented, and what the most successful strategies were for developing family-school partnerships, among other questions. Two schools are on Indian reservations, and four serve large numbers of Hispanic and other minority students. All schools serve high-poverty populations. The interviews revealed that involvement strategies fell into three themes: using curriculum that makes connections between students' lives and their families and communities; giving families tools to support their children, such as teaching them strategies for enhancing learning at home, explaining school policies and expectations, and linking with human-services organizations; and building mutual, respectful relationships. A list of resources concludes the booklet. (Contains 13 references.) (Rt)

Sharing the Wisdom of Practice Schools That Optimize Literacy Learning for All Students by Rebecca McClen Novick( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The No Child Left Behind Act leaves no doubt about the importance of effective reading instruction, setting a national goal for every child to become a proficient reader by the third grade. With 70% of fourth graders from low income families currently unable to read at even a basic level, teachers face a daunting challenge. The schools described in this book, like many schools across the country, are creatively addressing this challenge. The book states that they were chosen based on recommendations of early childhood specialists and that in these schools, teachers and administrators, together with students, families, and the larger community, continually examine, reflect on, and change educational and family engagement practices to meet the needs of an increasingly culturally and economically diverse community of students. The following schools are described in the book: Helen Gordon Child Development Center in Portland, Oregon; Whittier Elementary in Pasco, Washington; Cherry Valley Elementary in Polson, Montana; and Tulalip Elementary in Marysville, Washington. The High-Performing Learning Communities (HPLC) Project (2001) has developed a framework of principles that may be helpful when looking at the accomplishments of the schools described in the book, including: shared vision; challenging curriculum and engaged student learning; supportive organizational structures; collaborative learning community; and proactive community relations. Following the school stories, the book offers annotated lists of multicultural Web sites, including children's author sites and children's books and other educational resources for teaching children from specific cultures.
