Families' cooperation

3.2 Dealing with children from different cultures and backgrounds: Do’s and don’ts.
3.2.2 Good practices proposal

On the following tables, we can find a series of good practices that both educators and families should take into account when dealing with people from different cultures, religions and social/economic environments.

  1. Educational centre

 

 

Accessibility

Make the centre more accessible to the entire educational community by adapting its environments, programs and tools. Accessible curriculum adaptation. The inclusive curriculum can be completed by the students, with additional support or individualized follow-up.

 

 

 

Educational programs during after-school hours

If there is a high percentage of students with diversity, increasing the learning time during after-school hours or even during the holiday period could be an interesting solution. The objective is to increase learning opportunities and the performance of all students. Also carrying out psychomotor activities with the intention of bringing families to the center could be an interesting proposal.

 

Groups to encourage learning

 

 

Creation of "interactive groups" that encourage interactions. Unfolding the groups into two subgroups to reduce the teacher / student ratio, without labeling any student, is also an alternative to learn better and equally.

  1. Families

 

Collaboration in home tasks

Families are a source of knowledge not much valued, that’s why the experience of families from different cultures should be used to improve the teaching-learning process through workshops in small groups or help with necessary material.

 

 

Participation in the classroom

 

Participation of relatives in the classrooms for the realization of different activities. After this activities, the teacher debate with the parents what they have seen and discussed about education in diversity.

 

 

Collaborative families – educators workshops

 

Families, educators and students execute music, cooking, ceramics, arts or construction workshops using school materials.

 

Participation in extracurricular activities

 

The collaboration of parents and mothers in extracurricular activities provides students interest in educational programs. Likewise, family members can contribute developing their knowledge or skills on these activities.

 


The aim of all these activities is to connect the familiar environment with the educational, and improving communication, since "a good communication with them can help us better understand the students we have in our classrooms" (Taberner Perales, E., 2016).

As an example, we can use the educational model that has been implemented in the Jesuit schools in Catalonia. It is based in a new pedagogical model that places children as the center of the teaching and learning process, and in which the participation and collaboration of families is essential, strengthening and defending communication in both directions. In the following link, we can find all the information about this innovative educational project.
