Development of a Teacher-Parent Communication Program To Achieve Higher Academic Performance for Failing Tenth Grade Students.
Sexton, Patrick A.
This practicum proposal was directed at a targeted group of 10th grade students (n=40) failing after the first 3 weeks of school in either mathematics, science, or English. The Teacher-Parent Communication Program was designed to increase communication between teachers and parents to improve the academic performance of low-achieving high school students. For 12 weeks, teachers completed a teacher-parent contact log under the appropriate categories to track their attempts at communication with parents of the targeted students. The program results reflected improvement in grade point average, class assignment completions, critical thinking skills (organizing data, constructing logical arguments, and problem solving), and student attendance rates. The appendix includes monitoring procedures, program guidelines, and project results. (TE)
