Writing by the Water

Dr. Steve Constantino

"Efficacy provides a parent the belief that her involvement makes a difference to her child and the ultimate learning outcomes of that child. Traditional avenues of parent involvement do not take into consideration building the efficacy of parents to transfer knowledge from school to their children. Incorporate this idea into your thinking, planning and communicating."
