Parents - A Basic Skills Sourcebook.
Research Assessment Management, Inc., Silver Spring, MD.
Recognizing that the interest in improving basic skills in public education presents another opportunity for parents to become educators of their children, this sourcebook offers parents suggestions for initiating and continuing their involvement with the basic education of their children in grades 1 through 8. The guide is divided into sections appropriate to children aged 5 to 8 years, 9 to 11 years, and 12 to 13 years, with emphasis on children 9 to 13 years old. Each chapter begins with a discussion of the emotional changes children experience during the developmental stage discussed, then covers specific skills appropriate for children in that age group under the headings of mathematics, reading, communication, study habits, and coping. (The chapter for 5- to 8-year-olds provides only an overview of the emotional and academic changes of children.) Each chapter also has a section called "Happenings at Home," which suggests activities parents can do at home with their children. Also included is a chapter addressing computer literacy and test taking. The sourcebook concludes with a list of resource materials. (HTH)
