Parents, Children and Language. Children and Language Series.
Tasmanian Education Dept., Hobart (Australia).
Intended for teachers in Tasmania, this booklet discusses the role of parents and the home in language development as an integral and important part of a school's language program. The booklet suggests that schools need to determine the best way to communicate to parents: how important parents are to the early development of children's language; how schools attempt to build on children's experiences throughout the different grade levels and in the various curriculum areas; and how parents can complement and continue the work of the school. It explores some of the many aspects of a school's language program and how such aspects originate from, and relate back to, the home. The booklet's four chapters are: Adults as Models; Encouraging Language Development; All Lessons Are Language Lessons; and Communicating with Parents. Numerous black and white photographs illustrate the text. (MG)
