A Curriculum of Training for Parent Participation in Project Head Start.
Child Study Association of America, Inc., New York, NY.
This document is based on the theory that the ultimate success of the Head Start program in significantly correcting the educational disabilities of culturally deprived children depends on involving and educating the parents. This method would at least improve the immediate family environment of the deprived child. This document therefore sets out a curriculum of training for those who intend to train parents to participate in Head Start. The curriculum embodies the content areas, methodology, techniques, and skills the trainer will need and use in subsequent parent involvement sessions. Nine major topical areas are discussed in this curriculum guide: (1) the impact of poverty on family life, (2) teamwork for effective parent participation, (3) supervision, (4) recruitment of parents, (5) work with groups, (6) involvement of the individual parent, (7) community assessment, (8) community action, and (9) development and implementation of training programs for parent participation.
