What role does family play in student achievement?
As a high school student, I often dreaded the idea of having to write research papers. I found them boring and wordy. It wasn’t until I entered college and was forced to practice, and later became a teacher for students with disabilities that I realized the importance of staying informed and up-to-date with information that could help us make more educated decisions and understand essential topics better. I love finding science-based and research-based data. This information is factual information that could help society make better conclusions and assessments for interventions and decision-making.
What role does family play in student achievement? A very important one! I have included this link unto our website because I find it quite valuable to understand the variables that could play a role in children academic, social and emotional success.
This website provides analysed data regarding family research and the impact that family has on society. I find this to be very important information to share, as the values that we hold as a family help our little ones grow up with values of their own. This website also provides access to an extensive library of findings and scholarly articles and journals to help you stay up to date with the research.
Here I have included some research briefs to help you get started with your search for information. Simply click the links to read the files posted. Feel free to leave comments and ask questions. Begin your research quest and find more about the impact your family has on your child.
