In this abbreviated issue of the FINE Newsletter, we offer suggestions for your summer reading lists. We review John Merrow's new book, The Influence of Teachers: Reflections on Teaching and Leadership and include our 2010 Family Involvement Bibliography with books, articles, dissertations, and other resources for you to peruse. And, as always, we provide a round-up of recent family involvement news and updates.

Our fall issue of the FINE Newsletter will focus on new roles for families as children's learning worlds expand. To inform the issue, we are seeking insight from our FINE audience. If you use digital media to engage with students’ families, or teach parents how to use digital media to support their child’s learning, we’d love to hear from you! In addition to digital media, the fall Newsletter will also feature new information about families’ roles in data sharing and extended learning time. Please submit examples via email to, through Facebook, or via Twitter, directing comments to @HFRP.
