Six steps to partner with diverse families is a two page article from the January February issue of Principal, pp 46-47, and is directed at school principals.

From page 46: ” if teachers approach families with cultural responsiveness, they will select actions that value difference and support cross-cultural communication.”

The authors  discuss the following key concepts and strategies:

  1. set the expectation for teacher leadership
  2. learn about the child, family and community
  3. acknowledge a shared commitment
  4. embrace a strengths-based perspective
  5. forge trust
  6. encourage reciprocal communication
