Reading: Parents, Kids, Teachers Inc. A Resource Guide for Teachers Interested in Parental Involvement.
Oklahoma State Dept. of Education, Oklahoma City.
Recognizing the importance of parental involvement in a child's learning to read, this resource guide is designed to aid teachers in working with parents to achieve optimal learning experiences for children. The first chapter shows how responsibilities can be shared between home and school in the areas of physical and mental health, use of the media, homework, and summer reading. The second chapter discusses parent, teacher, and student conferences, suggesting ways teachers can evaluate parent conferences and respond to parents' questions about how they can best help their children. Ways of utilizing parents as reading volunteers are outlined in the third chapter, while chapter 4 presents specific activities and toys parents of preschool and kindergarten children can use to help children develop physical and language skills. Chapters 5 and 6 suggest ways teachers can work with the parents of handicapped and gifted children. The final chapters contain four appendixes covering a wide range of resources for parents and teachers and a bibliography. (JL)
