Children of Divorce Resource Guide. Information Sources for Children, Parents, and Teachers. Second Edition. (Revised).
McCormick, Ann M.; And Others
This guide has been developed to help educators and parents, particularly those in rural areas, locate information for better understanding the potential effects of divorce on children. The guide includes materials that consider different developmental stages of children and different stages of the divorce process. It offers materials that can be used by educators to intervene in supportive, non-threatening ways within the elementary school environment. Other materials may help parents and children to cope more effectively with the separation/divorce process. An opening section of the guide describes characteristics of developmental stages in the elementary grades, typical reactions of children to family separation, and possible teacher responses. The guide discusses six questions about children and divorce that are commonly asked by parents and teachers. It offers 187 resource entries, listed alphabetically by author under the following headings: readings for teachers and other school personnel; references for parents; children's books: kindergarten-grade 1, grades 2-3, grades 4-6, general; other media: programs, games, and films; and research publications. Many entries are annotated. Several publishers' addresses are provided to facilitate ordering materials. (TES)
