My latest book from Pembroke Publishers
Attention-Grabbing Tools

for involving parents in their children's learning

In this age cell phones and social media, of sound bites of eyewitness recordings, the very definition of communication is changing. This book explores a wide range of tools -- from take-home information and materials, through parent conferences and learning nights, to digital and social media. Teachers will learn new ways to establish and maintain a solid parent-teacher relationship, one that holds the child at the centre of all education decisions.
