Advanced Technology, Inc., Indianapolis, IN.
The "Clipboard Connection" is a methodology to facilitate the rapid circulation of relevant pre-existing materials from Chapter 1 Technical Assistance Centers (TACs) to their clients, teachers of educationally disadvantaged children in resource centers. Each "Clipboard Connection" consists of a lead sheet summarizing the contents of the materials (reprints of journal articles, brochures, etc.) to be distributed, and the materials themselves. This compilation focuses on parents' role and involvement in their children's education. The materials included are the following take-home flyers, produced by the National Education Association: (1) "Thinking Skills: How Parents Can Help" (Marcia Heiman and Joshua Slomianko); and (2) "Writing: Parents Can Help" (Tim Gillespie). These materials also include ideas relevant to in-class instruction. (AF)
