As a center director, you would like to offer the families of the children in your program more opportunity to become involved in the center. After reviewing the Strengthening Families program, you decide to institute a Parent Cafe for the parents of your center. You also need to remind parents that parent-teacher conferences are coming up and that parents are invited to volunteer in the classrooms as another way to get involved. To spread the word, you create a flyer to send home with each child. This flyer will serve as the invitation but also needs to entice parents to attend the event and volunteer, and remind them about conferences.
- When completing the weekly scenario, you must be sure to include both a focus assignment and a self-reflection. These must be clearly labeled using headings. Without the proper labels, I must assume that this step was not completed, and partial credit will be lost.
- Focus Assignment
- Self Reflection
- A self-reflection is a thorough explanation of your focus assignment. The self-reflection must be written in paragraph format with a minimum of 10 sentences.
