Parental Involvement in Children's Reading.
Topping, Keith, Ed.; Wolfendale, Sheila, Ed.
Noting recent research showing the considerable benefit in having carefully structured systems for parental involvement in reading, this book presents a review of past and current successful practices in this field. The chapters in the first part of the book discuss the context of international trends in parents' involvement in their children's education, models of the reading process, and reasons for parental involvement in children's reading works. The chapters in the second part are arranged under four subheadings: parent listening, paired reading, behavioral methods, and variations of parent involvement. Specific topics discussed in the chapters include implementation and take-up of a project to involve parents in the teaching of reading, the origins and future of paired reading, remedial reading at home, and a comparative study of three methods of parental involvement in reading. Chapters in the third section comprise a manual of materials and methods for implementing a program of parent involvement. (HTH)
