She is also well versed in behavioral models that can guide classroom management approaches. Setting up her classroom to take into account the varied needs and cultures of her twenty young students will be challenging, but she is determined to promote the success of each student. A get acquainted meeting with parents and family members might be just the thing to set the stage for a successful start to the school year! But, many decisions must be made before this critical meeting.

Prepare your presentation based upon what you know about the following:

  1. Promoting cultural acceptance in the classroom
  2. The importance of communication between teacher and parents/family
  3. How family systems impact family involvement in student education and success
  4. The behavioral models that can guide classroom management approaches

Collaborate with your team members on the following topics:

  1. How to design a class program to promote an understanding of, and appreciation for, cultural diversity. How can you bring parents/family members into the program?
  2. How would you design the communication system between teacher and parents? The frequency of scheduled communications and criteria for special communications should be determined.
  3. Decide upon the behavioral model that will inform the classroom environment. What aspects of classroom functioning will the model influence?

Once decisions have been made regarding the cultural diversity program, communication system, and the behavioral model that will inform the classroom environment, your team will develop a Power Point presentation to present this information at the “Back to School Night.” Each slide must contain a written version of what your verbal presentation would be in the “Notes” area of the slide.

The Power Point presentation should include a title page slide that includes the names of the team members, an introduction slide, and a reference slide (The title page and reference slides do not count toward the number of slides requirement.).
