Workshop at Rutgers University's Parent Expo

Description: This workshop speaks to those who know that parents play an important role in their
students’ education but find that it is sometimes hard to get parents involved. Learn how you can
change the mindset of parents that do not speak English and believe they cannot be a support system at home. Using the Family Engagement Dual Capacity Framework, learn how to increase family engagement that is student-centered and family strengthening to engage, guide, and motivate students to reach their fullest potential as they learn the English language together and succeed academically.
