Collaboration to Promote Student Learning

A. Teacher-student relationship has been shown to be a powerful predictor of students’ classroom and school adjustment. Beyond the characteristics of warmth, trust, and bond that define an emotional connection, a positive working relationship also includes a sense of collaboration and partnership shared between the teacher and the student, (Toste, n.d.).B. Positive relationships between teachers and students are among the most commonly cited variables associated with effective instruction. If the relationship is strong, instructional strategies seem to be more effective. Conversely, a weak or negative relationship will mute or even negate the benefits of even the most effective instructional strategies, (Marzano, 2011).

A. By encouraging communication and providing copies of classroom management policies, teachers encourage them to see themselves as partners in the classroom from the very beginning of the year (Burden and Byrd 2013).B. Effective classroom management includes building an appropriate level of cooperation between the teacher and students in the classroom. This level of cooperation is defined by taking into consideration the needs and opinion of others and participating as a member of a group instead of an individual (Burden and Byrd 2013).

A. “Effective professional collaboration in schools focuses on improving practice in order to improve student learning” (Education.com, Inc., 2014, p. 2) B. Professional collaboration benefits both teachers and students (Education.com, Inc., 2014).

A. The social expectations and values found in a culture influences almost everything that goes on in the school; it shapes the way teachers, students, and administrators think, feel and act (Kellner 2007, p. 23).B. A school's culture defines the focus of daily behavior and increases attention to what is important, it can build commitment and identification with core values, it can increase motivation, and it can enhance school effectiveness and productivity (Kellner 2007, p. 21).

A. Decision-making is the moral fiber of culture. The formal and informal decisions made by a group translate the values of the group into action and helps build a sense of community (Kellner, 2007).B. The community also plays a great part in the child's life in reaffirming lessons and values taught in the home and at school. It is essential that the family, school, and community work together to create an early learning environment that is stimulating for the child (Wilder, 2010).

An important practice is parental support. Parents should volunteer in the classroom, attend school events, fields trips, further their own education, and allow home visit by school staff (Wilder, 2010).The practice of hiring higher educated staff members provides more prepared leaders in a greater variety of school settings and professional roles. They perform at an advanced level, address complex issues, and influence appropriate behavior in diverse school systems. (Wilder, 2010).

A. Teachers need to do more than communicate with families, they neet to interact and collaborate with them. Parents can be partners with teachers in their children's education, (Burden, 2013, p. 337).B. "Families are critical resources for educators. Teachers must collaborate with families to better understand their students and maximize their learning," (Cook, 2013).

Best practices include :Using student classroom responsibilities to help them feel more involved in the daily running of the classroom.Using an extrenal site for progress reports such as www.classdojo.com which benefits both parents and students.Students as co-teachers in learning groups or as group/project leaders, (Burden, 2013, p. 337).

Best Prcatices for collaborating with parents include:Constant communication attempts parent-teacher conferences Having parents participate in the co-teaching process as class volunteers Using social media to improve contact levels,Using external websites for constant communication or progress updates such as www.classdojo.com

The best practice to support community relationships that promote student learning is to share knowledge freely, learn from one another, display flexibility, assist one another, share resources, and constructively deal with conflict (Loveday, 2010).Other practices that nurture productive and effective community relationships that support student learning are implementing processes that facilitate collaboration, involving the right people, and providing clear direction and goals. (Loveday, 2010).

Best practices for building high cooperation in the classroom between students and teacher include providing flexible learning goals, taking a personal interest in students, using equitable and positive classroom behaviors, and responding appropriately to students’ incorrect responses (Burden and Byrd 2013).Best practices for informing parents and caregivers of classroom management policies include providing a copy of to students to give to parents that provide all details of the classroom management plan and discipline policy. The letter should be discussed between the parents and students, signed by the parents, and the students should return the signed part to school at the very start of the school year (Burden and Byrd 2013).

Best practice for teacher collaboration includes creating a professional learning community where educators can work together to improve classroom practice and student learning (Education.com, Inc., 2014).Best Practice also includes using data to provide structure to teacher collaboration and keep focus on promoting student learning (Education.com, Inc., 2014).
