A Catalog of Parent Involvement Projects: A Collection of Quality Parent Projects for Assisting Children in the Achievement of Basic Skills.
Cruz, Norberto, Jr.; And Others
This catalog provides up-to-date information concerning projects that pursue parents' involvement in assisting their children to develop basic skills. Based on recommendations of a panel of experts, parenting projects have been classified into three categories. Section 1, "Comprehensive Parenting Projects," describes programs with multiple services for parents. These frequently include orientation and training sessions, distribution of awareness materials, scheduled parent/teacher conferences, and regular distribution of instructional materials for home use. Section 2, "Educational Materials and Information Service Projects," discusses projects specifically designed to be used by parents at home as they assist their children in math, reading, and communication skills. The focus of section 3, "Home-based Service Delivery Projects," is on projects that place special emphasis on increasing parental effectiveness by working with the parent and child at home. Finally, section 4 includes ordering information about projects that have developed and made available specialized materials. A set of indices for cross-referencing projects is also provided as an aid for identifying the projects described. (MP)
