Sayler, Mary Lou
This pamphlet describes a program to promote effective home-school relations and reflects the belief that parent-teacher cooperation is essential for the best education for children. Discussed are specific steps that teachers can take to involve parents in the classroom and some of the fears and attitudes that may influence the behavior and effectiveness of parents. Suggestions are given to help teachers plan activities which are appropriate for parental help in class (nursery through grade 6). A final chapter sums up problems which may be encountered, enumerating teacher fears and rewards in a parent participation program. (NH)
