A Handbook on Parent Involvement with a Focus on Parents' Educational and Social Development and Positive-Parent-Child Interactions.
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of Instructional Services.
These handbooks (1978 and 1980) describe procedures for involving parents on school activities and for conducting (1) parent-child interaction activities in schools for disadvantaged families, and (2) workshops for disadvantaged parents to facilitate their social, educational and caregiver role development. The 1978 handbook includes ideas and procedures for involving parents on getting acquainted sessions, field trips, classrooms and school policy advisory committees. In the 1980 handbook, the parent-child interaction program component emphasized activities for helping the child with language development as well as with other cognitive and affective abilities. The Workshop component was focused on the world of work, social, study and communication skills and general educational development. Additional workshops discussed helping children develop a healthy sexuality, personal grooming, sewing and cooking. A major part of the handbook provides an account of what was done by Project Follow Through staff to involve and assist parents, their children and school personnel. The handbook also provides, in several appendices, summary reports on the parent-child interaction activities that were conducted, sample memos and bulletins, minutes of meetings, plans, questionnaires and workshop curricula. It is concluded that both the interaction activities and the workshops can be used to increase home and school cooperation. (Author/RH)
