Book cover for A Field Guide to Community Literacy

In our chapter, we share our perspective of family engagement and the models that have emerged from three decades of family-centered work. We present compelling evidence of what works for families most in need and what produces positive outcomes. Those outcomes have informed the development of our models and continue to inform our practice.
