You are a second-year preschool teacher who has worked hard to  develop rapport with parents and make them feel welcome in your  classroom and the school. You have observed that parents have developed a  close bond and love to discuss topics related to education (e.g.,  toilet learning and good toys for young children) as well as subjects  related to community life (e.g., neighborhood childcare centers). You  approach your center director about creating a parent education plan.  She is in favor and encourages you to team up with other teachers to  create a plan to implement the program in the fall. For the first step  in creating your plan, you and your fellow teachers ask parents directly  about their interests. For the second step in your plan, you work with  your fellow teachers and parents to determine the style of meeting that  you think will promote the richest interactions among parents (e.g.,  classroom versus whole school). For the third step in your plan, you  focus on your role in the meeting. In the past, some parents complained  that they did not feel their voices were heard. Above all, you decide  you want to create a warm, supportive atmosphere in which you serve as a  facilitator of discussions rather than “the expert lecturer.”

Focus Assignment

1.  Create a plan for a parent education program. For the first step, write  a paragraph to describe how you and your fellow teachers will approach  parents to find out what interests and needs they would most like the  school to focus on in the upcoming year. Be sure to explain whether you  would call an in-person meeting or send home a questionnaire (or both).  For the second step, write a paragraph stating the pros and cons of  adopting various meeting styles and include which type you decide to  use. For the third step, list four strategies you will use to promote  discussion, participation, and goodwill during parent meetings.



1. For each step in your plan:
     a. Explain how this step addresses the issues in the scenario.
