Handbook for Parents Enrolled in Parent Education Cooperative Groups. Columbia Basin College Parent Education Program.
Debban, Barbara, Comp.; And Others
This handbook is intended for parents in the Parent Education Program at Columbia Basin College (CBC), Washington. It is designed to help them learn about their role as a participating parent, as an assistant teacher, as a group member, and as a student in a parent education cooperative group. The importance of parent education is emphasized. A discussion of the program organization follows. A section on participation guidelines provides details on the parent agreement, group officers, field trips, accident procedures, and insurance. The role of CBC in the parent cooperatives is then addressed. Other sections focus on the interrelationship of play and learning, the role of the parent in the classroom, and discipline and guidance. Suggestions for activities for the classroom include creative activities, snacks, science, activities encouraging physical growth, and toys. Other contents are health and safety guidelines, tasks to teach responsibility, and an annotated bibliography of resources on various aspects of parenting. (YLB)
