A Model Information Workshop for Prospective TK Parents.
Johnson, Donna M.
A kindergarten teacher implemented and evaluated a practicum intervention designed to improve an elementary school's communication with parents concerning its transitional kindergarten program. Implementation occurred over 10 weeks and involved the formation of a committee to approve the plan of action; meetings with seven kindergarten teachers to discuss the coordination of parent-teacher conferences; implementation of parent-teacher conferences attended by kindergarten teachers and parents of children recommended for the transitional program; implementation of two informational programs for parents; and a visit of prospective transitional students to the transitional kindergarten class. Parent survey data suggested that the outcomes of the intervention were positive. Related materials, such as objectives of the transitional kindergarten program, parent survey instruments, and a description of the program's whole language approach to the kindergarten curriculum, are appended.
