Parent Involvement for Motivated Learners provides pre-service teachers and researchers with guidance on how to foster mindful, healthy school-family partnerships that empower students to become resilient, self-directed learners. Given the intense academic pressures on students to succeed—and on parents and teachers to help them do so—it is important to develop learners who can weather increased standards and demands. Committed to helping teachers reflect on how parental involvement relates to ideas such as the growth mindset and self-regulated learning, this book is an accessible synthesis of relevant research and theory surrounding student motivation and parental involvement.
