Parents and Teachers: A Resource Book for Home, School, and Community Relations.
Croft, Doreen J.
Attempting to assist teachers in involving parents more completely in school life, this resource guide provides information and ideas on working and communicating with parents, parent-teacher meetings, and parent guidance. Part one of the book discusses the importance of sensitive communications, individual differences, and protocol. Part two deals with specific kinds of parent-teacher meetings and activities. Part three provides teachers with some guidelines for answering some of the typical questions that many parents believe teachers should be able to answer. In the Appendix of Resources, a compilation of checklists, parent and teacher evaluation forms, referral agencies, and planning schedules is offered. The book is directed primarily toward elementary school teachers. (DS)
