Suppose a parent confided to you: “I think my child is struggling with reading and writing and is falling behind in school. What can I do to
help?” Use the questions to guide your responses and comments on the posts of at least two peers.
• What questions would you ask the parent?
• What advice would you give the parent?
• How would you use what you know about research-based practices to advise the parent?
• How does having a school-wide comprehensive approach to student literacy help teachers address parent concerns?
