Back to School—The Time to Engage Parents and Families

(From the President) Permanent link
Diane J. Briars, NCTM PresidentIt's August—back-to-school time. As you plan for the new school year, don't forget to make explicit plans for engaging parents and families. As you well know, parents can be invaluable supports for their children's mathematics learning. While it's helpful to send parents basic information about their children's mathematics class, such as course outlines, assignments, and descriptions of teacher expectations, they typically need much more than that to be prepared to support their children's mathematics learning.
