    Teachers can learn about families they work with by completing the family profile, and can then expand their work in this area by doing it with other families to inform their classroom practice.

    Students have been introduced to the three major assignments for this course.  They have been working on the family profile, including visits to a family of a student in their class.  They will now work to complete this assignment to prepare for presenting it.


    1. You should have completed your two visits to the family you have been studying.   

    2. The links to the assignments and rubrics can be found at LA 1.6. 
    3. Now you will complete writing up your experience(s) with this family, reflect on your learning and how you can apply this learning to your everyday work. 

    4. This assignment is due in session 6 where you will present it in small groups.  The assignment includes creating a visual to share within the group you are presenting with.  Be sure you are prepared to share in session 6.
