Parents as Teachers: Helping Your Children to Become Better Communicators.
Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield.
Based on the belief that learning can take place in the home as well as in the school, this booklet was developed as a means of helping parents contribute to the improvement of their children's oral communication skills. Various sections of the booklet contain the following: (1) a discussion of children's communication behaviors, including an explanation of each of the five types of communication--informing, feeling, controlling, imagining, and ritualizing; (2) a list of general guidelines for use by parents in developing those communication skills; and (3) specific guidelines for promoting each of the five communication skills, arranged according to the age of the child from preschool through grade 12.
