Welcome to the SAGE companion site for Home, School, and Community CollaborationFifth Edition!

Built around a culturally responsive family engagement model, the fifth edition of Home, School, and Community Collaboration: Culturally Responsive Family Engagement prepares teachers to work empathetically and collaboratively with all families. Through case studies, vignettes, and reflective connections, authors Kathy B. Grant and Julie A. Ray guide readers through changing trends in family engagement. The authors emphasize a strengths-based approach to families throughout the text. This book offers powerful ways to connect with families through online communication, community engagement, and suggestions from families, in their own words, to improve home-school collaboration. The fifth edition highlights the national and global shifts in family engagement. Each chapter now features an "Impact of a Pandemic" textbox, highlighting a key effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on children and families and offering resources and support for teachers. Additionally, each chapter now includes learning objectives tied to key topics and new end-of-chapter assessments aligned with each learning objective. Chapter 10, Teacher as Family Communication Facilitator, is now Chapter 3 in the text to prepare readers earlier to take on this crucial role. Throughout, the latest data, policies, models, and citations give readers up-to-date information and the latest thinking on working with students and families alike.

This site features an array of free resources you can access anytime, anywhere.
