Abstract

Parents and the classroom teacher hold separate yet overlapping roles in helping to increase student achievement. The roles are separate because they are being accomplished in two different settings, separate from one another, and each adult will have his or her own way of conducting the reading experience. They are similar because they are both centered on the child's literacy learning and both parties are trying to meet the needs of the child.

The difficulty in this situation can be developing separate roles for the parent and teacher and also finding a way to work together in the roles they share and developing that partnership. The key to effective parent involvement is the ability for both the parents and the teacher to work together, communicate, collaborate, develop a partnership, allow both voices to be heard, and most importantly, keep the needs of the student in mind at all times.
