Chapter 6 explains the National Standards for Family-school partnerships (Links to an external site.),
as presented by the National PTA. Although these standards are written
for school-aged children, they are more than applicable to the early
childhood classroom, as presented in your text. Review the suggestions
for each of the six standards as well as NAEYC’s Family Engagement Resource List (Links to an external site.).
Using your assigned grouping below, explain the two standards and offer

your students and their families.

Below is your assigned grouping by the first letter of your last name:
