EDU 647 Week 6 Final Project Your Culturally Responsive Classroom PowerPoint
Focus of the Final Project
You have been asked by your administrator to develop a PowerPoint presentation and supporting paper for the staff. The purpose of the PowerPoint is to give concrete examples, suggestions, and ideas to create a more inviting family-school climate at your site, and to entice the staff to read your full paper on the topic. Your Principal understands your desire to make change at your school site and has shown you additional research stating that family involvement supports student success. In order for your staff to buy-in to this new paradigm they must have the background knowledge and specific examples to understand the necessity of change.
Therefore your presentation and paper must:

Synthesize an approach, from the previous points in the presentation/paper, to link your school and family with your community
The presentation should include 10-15 PowerPoint slides (enough to entice your coworkers to read your supporting paper) and a 7-10 page paper to accompany your visual presentation. Your PowerPoint should include a title slide and a references slide in addition to the 10-15 slides highlighting the major topics described above. The purpose of the PowerPoint is to persuade your co-workers of the importance of creating an inviting school climate.
