Parent Involvement in Education Project (PIEP) December 1, 1983 through November 30, 1984. Annual Report.
Williams, David L., Jr.; And Others
This report describes the development of guidelines and strategies for training teachers about parent involvement. The guidelines and strategies were developed through a comprehensive process that: (1) used the recommendations from previous surveys of teacher educators, principals, teachers, parents, and school governance persons; (2) conducted a thorough review of the literature; (3) undertook a six-state need-sensing among experts and college/university faculty regarding what teacher training about parent involvement should include; and (4) conducted an assessment of a draft version of the guidelines and strategies by parent involvement experts, faculty from the colleges and universities, representatives from local, intermediate, and state education agencies, and parent-teacher association leaders. Attachments include: the literature review; lists of experts, organizations, and bibliographic sources; questionnaires and correspondence; summaries of experts' responses and evaluations; and the developed guidelines and strategies. The materials are designed to serve as a basis for expanding, increasing sensitivity to, and soliciting parent cooperation and support, as well as input into education. (Author/JD)
