An effective, at-a-glance way to enrich your communication with families.
Print and distribute this sheet to parents and ask them to return it to you, ideally before your first one-on-one conversation together. This can be effective, at-a-glance way to enhance and enrich your communication, since you’ll have background in advance about:
- Home languages, culture, customs, and traditions
- What peaks their child’s interests
- What, in particular, upsets their child
- Anything else families would like you to know (often the most important and helpful pieces of information you’ll learn!)
