Summary
    Beyond the Classroom Walls is a collection of recent peer-reviewed articles matched with practical teaching tools. The selected articles include relevant content that allow readers to explore various education settings: rural, urban, elementary and secondary schools, and university environments.

    The book encourages students to view home, school, and community partnerships through a broad lens. It addresses core aspects of the topic, creates additional insight through unique, realistic assignments and class activities, and encourages culturally responsive involvement. The first chapters examine involvement frameworks and a variety of home, school, and community partnership standards.

    Students will also explore the importance of pre-service teacher training, common logistical and psychological barriers impeding involvement, practical strategies for breaking down the barriers, and how to establish reciprocal relationships between families, schools, and the larger community. Special features of the text include graphic organizers, field work applications, extended reflections, case studies, and action research.

    Beyond the Classroom Walls is best suited for use as a primary or supplemental text in undergraduate teacher preparation programs and practica.
