Participants will learn a practical method for families and educators to work more effectively with each other to improve communication, increase parental/family participation, nurture engagement, and develop stronger partnerships. The method, based on the Right Question Institute’s three decades of work in family engagement, can be integrated into existing outreach efforts and work with parents/guardians, students, and families. As a case study, we will examine how this method can be used to have constructive conversations around gun violence and school safety. Participants will walk away from the session with concrete tools and access to further resources to help put the method into
This session will help participants build advocacy-related knowledge, skills, and behaviors focused on relationship development with applications in everyday engagements and the promotion of racial and social justice work, but it cuts across other leadership competencies as well, including Leading Our Profession and Social and Emotional Intelligence. Participants will be able to use the method taught during the session in their own engagements with parents, students, families, and colleagues and will be equipped to help other leaders and members adopt and use the strategy.
Presenters: Joel Solomon and Naomi Campbell
