Innovation: Teacher House Calls

| 1 Comment

An article by Larry Ferlazzo, a teacher of English-language learners at Luther Burbank High School in California, published today by Teacher Magazine is not only about Ferlazzo's experiences in visiting the homes of some of his students. It's also about how the Sacramento City Unified School District has partnered with its local teachers' union to support visits of teachers districtwide to their students' homes. It's called the Parent/Teacher Home Visit Project.

Through the project, teachers are compensated for their time in making home visits.

Now that's an innovation.

Mary Ann,

Thanks for writing about my article. One of the chapters in my "Building Parent Engagement" book is about the Parent/Teacher Home Visit Project, too.

And welcome to Twitter!
