Involving Parents in Classroom Activities

Involving Parents in Classroom Activities

Families that come from developing nations often struggle with language barriers and unfamiliarity with U.S. culture. As such, these parents have been reluctant participants in school engagement. The SeaVuria project brings those families in by embracing the opportunity to learn from them directly.

Parents have offered their students first-hand stories of their relationship with water issues. Nasif’s mom shared her personal story of dropping out of school after fourth grade to help her mom transport water from a source 3 hours away.  This trek left no time for school.  Hodo’s father helped her create the Action Project to bring awareness to the issues of deforestation in Uganda.

We collected more stories from our students about water issues in this video. Hear what they said:  http://youtu.be/zvpBDNWuVUc
