Module 2: Respect and Communication

Image of group meeting around a table

In this module, parents and teachers are introduced to respect as a principle of partnership and a foundation for group sessions. Communication is introduced as both a principle for creating a foundation of partnerships, and as an effective key strategy for involving parents and families. Parent and teacher co-facilitators guide the group in a discussion based on the facilitator slides. Just as in Module 1, we recommend incorporating a “get to know you” activity, a video about respect and communication, and a discussion of next steps for the school year.
