Improving the Active Participation of Third Grade Students' Parents in Their Child's Educational Process.
Johnston, Arlene M.
An elementary school teacher designed and implemented a year-long practicum study on parent education which was intended to improve parent participation in their third-graders' school work and learning. A parent awareness component was added to Parent Teacher Organization programs. Guest speakers presented programs on topics that involved parents and ways parents could help their child. Teachers compiled parent information booklets and sent them home to parents. Children's work folders and letters to parents were also sent home regularly. In addition, the number of face-to-face and telephone conferences was increased. Practicum evaluation data suggested that the intervention was effective. Parents increased their involvement in their children's education. Appendices provide measures, the parent information booklet, and other related materials. (RH)
