“Project Inspire - Proyecto Inspire Transformando Vidas” (bilingual Eng/Span format) - Season 7 (2016)
/

The California Association for Bilingual Education (CABE) 2-INSPIRE Program works with parents to increase their knowledge about schooling to ensure that parents have vital information about high quality educational options for their children (especially those traditionally underserved and/or attending Program Improvement schools). The Project 2-INSPIRE curriculum informs parents of their role in their children’s education, works with parents so they learn how to work with the information acquired and develops parent leadership skills to ensure their participation and collaboration as part of the school community.
 
All three levels of the program share the same objective and goal: To increase parental engagement in their child’s learning at home, school, and/or community; and thereby increase their child’s academic achievement. However, each of the levels differs markedly in their approach, strategies, methods, activities, and outcomes for parents and their children.
 
The panelists are parent leaders who currently serve as officers of the Binational Parent Leadership Institute (BPLI), and as “trainer of trainers” have each passed all three levels, from awareness to mastery to expert.
 
Proyecto INSPIRE es un proyecto que pertenece a CABE que trabaja con los padres para aumentar sus conocimientos acerca de la escolarización para asegurar que los padres tengan la información vital acerca de las opciones educativas de alta calidad para sus hijos. El plan de estudios del Proyecto INSPIRE informa a los padres de su papel en la educación de sus hijos, trabaja con los padres para que aprendan cómo trabajar con la información adquirida y desarrolla las habilidades de liderazgo de los padres para asegurar su participación y colaboración en el marco de la comunidad escolar.
 
Los tres niveles comparten el mismo objetivo y meta: aumentar la participación de los padres en el aprendizaje de sus hijos en el hogar, la escuela y/o comunidad; y por lo tanto aumentar el rendimiento académico de sus hijos. Sin embargo, cada uno de los niveles se diferencia notablemente en su enfoque, estrategias, métodos, actividades y resultados para los padres y sus hijos.  
 
Los panelistas son líderes de padres que actualmente sirven como oficiales de la Binational Parent Leadership Institute (BPLI), y como “formador de formadores" han pasado cada uno de los tres niveles, desde la conciencia a la maestría a nivel experto.
