Chapter 7: Families overcoming obstacles
#1 How could looking at the Wallace family from a strengths perspective help Clara collaborate more effectively with Keisha’s parents?
After having talked with her principal and learning of Keisha’s family situation, Clara can now understand what Keisha is going thru at home and maybe schedule a meeting with her parents to see how she can help. “Show understanding – not judgement based on generalizations and misconceptions. Express appreciation for their efforts as parents, and do not assume that a lack of involvement in education means that they do not care about their children.” (Beegle, 2003b, p.19)
