The Parent/Student Study Skills Connection.
Molek, Carol; Goss, Barbara
This document describes how an adult basic education (ABE) program in Pennsylvania conducted a study skills training course to teach 54 parents how to help their school-age children with their homework. Parents also participated in informal follow-up throughout the school year. Evaluation of the program showed that it was successful both from the attitudes of participants and by their advancement in the ABE program. The curriculum contains 84 activities that cover the following topics: time management, communication skills, listening skills, assertiveness, classroom success, following directions, taking notes, study skills, test-taking techniques, essay tests, multiple-choice tests, and tips on learning. Activities include information sheets, checklists, and exercises. (KC)
