Children of Divorce: With an In-Service Workshop.
Berger, Susan R., Comp.; And Others
This monograph provides an inservice workshop approach that school systems can use to address the needs of students who experience divorce. Questions addressed include: (1) What can school systems do to help students cope with their parents' divorce? (2) What can educators do to create a learning environment that is congenial for children who live with one parent? and (3) What resources are available to help teachers meet the needs of children of divorce? Chapter 1 presents research findings and lists recommendations on what can be done in schools to help children of divorce. Chapter 2 discusses effects of divorce at various developmental stages. Chapter 3, which provides the workshop outline, covers consciousness-raising for teachers, parent-teacher conferences, guidelines concerning the single parent for teachers, and legal issues relating to separation and divorce that are relevant to the school. Chapter 3 includes a survey questionnaire for single parents on school programs and policies, parent/school communication, and attitudes of school personnel. Chapter 4 delineates the teacher's role and describes group activities for elementary and secondary school students. An annotated bibliography provides over 75 citations and lists films and videotapes. A resource guide lists over 35 books for students. (RH)
