Martin, Beverly A.
This resource book contains classroom activities and suggested resources for teachers working with fathers and their children in literacy education classes for minority and ethnic groups. The book begins with a reading attitude survey for fathers. Five units of study follow, focusing on the following themes: (1) ourselves and our families; (2) our background; (3) we can do it together; (4) learning together (suggestions for parent-teacher interaction); and (5) heroes and heroines (especially athletes). Each unit consists of the following: (1) several activity outlines with information on time and materials required, skill learned, learning procedure, adaptations for situational variations, and evaluation; (2) a teacher's guide with suggestions for implementing the activities; (3) a bibliography of resources for parents and children (including books and addresses for additional resources); and (4) an appendix with worksheets for the activities.
