P.L.A.C.E.S. Parents Learning to Assist Children in the Elementary School: A Workshop for Parents. Handbook.
This handbook contains everything needed to prepare instructional materials for conducting a PLACES (Parents Learning to Assist Children in the Elementary School) workshop. The handbook contains three sections. The Participant Manual (composed of all left-facing pages) consists of materials needed for the four sessions (17 activities) of the workshop. The sessions focus on four topics: introduction to school success, working with your child at home, working with the teacher, and working with the school. Materials include questionnaires, learning activities, values clarification quizzes, case studies, and problem solving. The teacher/facilitator's guide (all right-facing pages) includes brief introductory notes to the adult education director and to the facilitator, as well as specific suggestions/directions for conducting each activity of the workshop. Finally, the appendix, entitled "How to Conduct a PLACES Workshop," provides step-by-step instructions for conducting the workshop. (KC)
