The Parent Teacher Partnership.
Barsch, Ray H.
The text is primarily intended to encourage a particular attitude among teachers to guide them in their relationships with parents, and secondarily to be useful directly to parents. Through an analysis of the parent teacher conference relationship, the author presents particular concepts and outlines a plan of action. Personal dynamics of both the parent and the teacher are recognized and analyzed in the conference setting. The role of the parent as a perceiver, learner, and teacher is scrutinized, emphasizing the parent role of a teaching associate, allied in the provision of experiences to advance and enrich the learner. A bicurricular approach to learning is offered by the author, requiring the teacher to seek ways to assist the parent in devising and implementing activities to reinforce and supplement classroom objectives. The parent teacher conference is seen as a potentially constructive, working partnership to help the exceptional child. (CD)
