The School-Community Cookbook: Recipes for Successful Projects in the Schools. A "How-To" Manual for Teachers, Parents & Community.
Hyman, Carl S., Ed.
Guidelines and ideas for creating successful school/community projects are provided in this handbook. Organized like a cookbook, the book contains 43 chapters by individual contributors who take a community-based approach to education, in which the schools are the pivotal institutions of a community. The first section outlines the roles, or "main ingredients," of various participants, who include students, administrators, business, higher education, the school board, staff, teachers, parents, volunteers, the clergy, and the media. Section 2 presents "recipes," or step-by-step instructions for the following kinds of projects: community service; fundraising, partnerships, grants, and alumni involvement; student/family/community involvement; legislative affairs; public relations; and student achievement. The third section discusses other issues, or "food for thought." Issues include project evaluation, advocacy, budgeting, and designing a school mission. The appendix lists community resources in: (1) Baltimore (Maryland); and (2) Maryland Maryland. (LMI)
