Written for the Minnesota Reading Excellence Act training sessions, the two modules in this workshop focus on home-school strategies to enhance students' reading success. The Parent-Teacher Partnership Module provides teachers with knowledge about effective partnerships and strategies to enhance home support for reading. The Leadership Module for Family-School Partnerships provides school leadership teams with information about school variables that impact parent participation.

Both modules offer a framework based on four school variables likely to impact family-school partnerships: approach taken, attitudes held, atmosphere present, and actions taken. They summarize research in family-school partnerships and present activities and reflective questions. A PowerPoint presentation is also available for each module.
