Week 3 Discussion
This week, locate an article on family roles across cultures. Use the NSU library system which will offer you a wide variety of scholarly full-text articles in those areas. Include bibliographic information in APA format (author, year, title, journal, etc.) so your classmates may also locate it, if desired. Provide a brief critique of the article and what impressed you about it, especially if the information is new to you.

Week 6 Discussion
Engaging families in decision making is considered essential for effective collaboration. Take a moment to reflect on collaborative decision making experiences. Which ones have you participated? What have been the main “take aways” from those experiences?
Week 7 Discussion
Read Chapter 14 “Seeing the Big Picture: Creating a School Climate that Strengthens Family-School Connections.” Do you agree with the authors in their ideas of “changing assumptions about teaching”? Give reasons why you agree or disagree.
