Increasing Parental Involvement in Helping Fourth Grade Children To Learn through Home Curriculum To Improve Homework Habits.
Barber, Geraldine M.
This practicum was designed in response to a lack of parental involvement in a fourth grade classroom. The goals of the practicum were: (1) to encourage parents to become involved in helping their children learn at home as well as at school by attending parent-teacher conferences and other school-related activities; (2) to provide home visitation in order to help in establishing a home curriculum; and (3) to give support to parents who need help in assisting their children with homework. All 25 parents became involved in some aspect of the program, and considerable gains were made in parents' attitudes toward regular visits to school. In addition, parents monitored homework and, consequently, children completed and returned assignments. Twenty-three references are listed and two brief survey forms are appended. (PCB)
