Back-to-School Survival Guide: Part Two – Communication with Parents & Letters Home

TeachersConnect’s Back-to-School Survival Guide is a 4-part series that deals with common topics most teachers face in their first few weeks of school.

A group of experienced teachers reviewed relevant scholastic papers, searched their personal resources and combed through TeachersConnect and online content to provide you with a concise guide full of valuable back-to-school resources, just for you!

In our Back-to-School Survival Guide Part Two we look at Communication with Parents & Letters Home. “Student–teacher and parent–teacher relationship quality influences children’s academic motivation and engagement” according to a study conducted by The National Institute of Health. A strong relationship can help both teacher and parent to support student learning. We’ve compiled resources to get you started building these relationships.

Part Two of the Back-to-School Survival Guide covers the following topics with suggestions for elementary to high school classrooms:

  • How to introduce yourself
  • Outlining your expectations and goals
  • Syllabus examples
  • Consequences for breaking rules
