This text for an undergraduate or graduate level family engagement course presents a culturally responsive model for supporting diverse families, for those who will work as early childhood and elementary teachers. Section 1 provides background on theories and models for family engagement in schools. Section 2 describes today's diverse families, including culturally diverse families, families in transition, families overcoming obstacles, and families in abusive situations. Section 3 describes skills in family engagement, looking at the teacher as a communication facilitator and family advocate. There is advice on working with families of children with exceptional needs, conducting home visits, and organizing schoolwide programs. Appendices provide standards, contacts for state agencies, and an extensive glossary. The text's two-color layout includes b&w photos, plus case studies, reflection questions, and briefly annotated web links. Student and instructor websites are available. This second edition contains more material on theory, along with new material on autism, RTI, and technology. Grant is affiliated with the State University of New York-Plattsburgh. Ray is affiliated with Southeast Missouri State University. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
