Powered By Families: Co-Creating Professional Learning Through Family Engagement Summits
Teach to Lead’s innovative family engagement summit provides a new model for co-creating professional development with families.
Together with Teach to Lead, a project guided by teacher leaders at the U.S. Department of Education and ASCD, we took a look at the first-ever family engagement summit, which provided a structured model for actively engaging families alongside educators, administrators, and community partners.
This report highlights the voices of summit organizers Frances Frost and Gillian Cohen, as well as insights from two summit teams: PAVE (Parents Amplifying Voices in Education) from Washington, D.C., and AFEL (Action for Early Learning) in West Philadelphia.
