Effects of the Teachers Involve Parents in Schoolwork (TIPS) Social Studies and Art Program on Student Attitudes and Knowledge. Report No. 41.
Epstein, Joyce L.; Dauber, Susan L.
Research has shown that parent involvement in a child's education at home and school has a significant impact on the student's success. The Teachers Involve Parents in Schoolwork (TIPS) project, which has been operating in a Baltimore City middle school for 3 years, offers processes and models designed to increase the involvement of parents in productive roles as volunteers and provides a structure for the middle grades teacher to develop and provides a structure for the middle grades teacher to develop and conduct a program integrating art and social studies. The process links art appreciation, history, and criticism to middle school social studies curricula and uses parents to present lessons on well-known art work government, and citizenship. This paper presents the first formal evaluation of the TIPS process. Data were collected from over 400 middle school students and questionnaires measured students' recognition of and reactions to American artists and paintings that they saw in their social studies classes. The data is analysed and presented in tabular form; and it is concluded that the TIPS process can be a useful way of providing students with a background in art awareness, art history and art criticism, especially when teachers trained in art education are scarce, time is tight, and budgets are low.
