Research indicates that "communication", "collaboration" and "partnerships" are essential to engaging families in their children's learning and schooling. This unit provides students with an opportunity to develop the understandings and skills needed to communicate and work effectively with families (parents and guardians), the wider community and other key stakeholders involved in education including allied health and community professionals. Underpinning the unit is a perspective that recognises the importance of connectedness between schools and other educational contexts and their communities and students. The unit draws on contemporary understandings of the broader issues affecting children and families in society, including public policy and social justice and equity issues. Issues relating to the political and socio cultural contexts of education are used to inform and facilitate communication with families, to better engage children with learning and to promote advocacy roles for teachers and schools.
