Parent-Assisted Learning.
Niedermeyer, Fred C.
The effects of parent-monitored practice at home on pupil performance in reading were investigated. The study used as instructional vehicles the Parent-Assisted Learning Program (PAL) and the Southwest Regional Laboratory's (SWRL) First-Year Communication Skills Program. PAL was designed to enable school personnel to establish a system whereby parents effectively instruct their primary-grade children in basic skills at home. Programed materials, called Practice Exercises, and carefully prescribed training procedures were developed to be used by parents or other nonprofessionals. The results of a study made in three kindergarten classes indicated that the PAL and Communication Skills Program elicited high levels of parent participation and pupil learning. References are included. (Author/NH)
