Test Bank For Home, School, and Community Collaboration Culturally Responsive Family Engagement 4th Edition By B. Grant

Test Bank For Home, School, and Community Collaboration Culturally Responsive Family Engagement 4th Edition By Kathy B. Grant, Julie A. Ray, ISBN: 9781506365732, ISBN: 9781544332628, ISBN: 9781544332635

Home, School, and Community Collaboration uses the culturally responsive family support model as a framework to prepare teachers to work effectively with children from diverse families. Authors Kathy B. Grant and Julie A. Ray skillfully incorporate numerous real-life vignettes and case studies to show readers the practical application of culturally responsive family engagement.

The Fourth Edition contains additional content that enhances the already relevant text, including: a new section titled “Perspectives on Poverty” acknowledging the deep levels of poverty in the United States and the impact on family-school relations; increased coverage of Latino/Latina family connections; and updated demographics focusing on the issues impacting same-sex families, families experiencing divorce, children and family members with chronic illnesses, military families, and grandparents raising children.
