Ready, Set, Go: Cultivating Family Involvement and Meaningful Relationships

Flo Hill-Winstead, Educational Advancement, LLC
Grades: PreK-5
Ready, Set, Go (RSG) details unique opportunities and solutions for family engagement for a successful 21st Century Program where the norm is little to no family involvement in student learning and school activities. This workshop consists of hands-on experiences of a four-part plan: 1) Needs assessment, 2) Design, 3) Implementation, and 4) Evaluation. The success of the current program will be shared with participants while materials for each phase will be explored. The focus is on the interactive experiences used on-site during the implementation phase of the RSG Program. These experiences are inclusive of content specific activities and family engagement activities that can be introduced and developed in an afterschool program setting that will easily transfer to the community and the home. Attendees will participate in a hands-on activity simulating the dynamics among family members, teachers, community members, and students. Simulations will address the following broad topics: 1) Parent Workshops, 2) Building Relationships, 3) Stressful Situations, and 4) Student Led Interactive Content-Based Experiences.
