Increasing Parent Involvement Knowledge and Strategies at the Preservice Level: The Power in Using A Systematic Professional Development Approach
This study describes various strategies used by a university educator to integrate parent involvement curriculum into pre-existing teacher preparation courses. This is a case study of a curriculum-based design built from feedback of preservice teachers over a three-semester period and the development of modules based on an analysis of curricular syllabi from teacher preparation courses. Third semester interns perceived a higher degree of preparation in using parent involvement strategies. This curriculum infusion was effective in increasing preservice teacher knowledge. It was also effective in raising course instructors’ level of awareness about the importance and necessity of parent involvement in student learning.
