Workshops

Through our partnership with UWM-CUCD, we have developed a Funds of Knowledge (FOK) approach to Parent Engagement. FOK training learning activities that we have developed are as follows:

  • Thinking Map—Journey, where they are from and what they have learned from their parents
  • Parent Profile
  • Parents Rights and Responsibilities
  • FOK Interviews
  • Parents ask their own questions
  • Digital photo project—parents illustrate how they support learning at home through pictures which they bring to class. These pictures are put into PowerPoint along with individual narrative for each picture.
  • Parents captured the learning environment at home—involvement of parents and development of reflective skills
  • Photos are all taken by the parents
  • Surveys on FOK of the Home and School
