Helping Your Child Succeed in School.
Association of American Publishers, New York, NY.
This booklet offers parents guidance on teaching their children attitudes, learning skills, and study skills that will help them succeed in school. Section 1 focuses on the creation of a shared learning environment in the home. Parents are encouraged to set limits, establish routines, provide a secure atmosphere of encouragement and support, listen to their children, create learning opportunities, and help their children approach school eagerly and with the expectation of success. Section 2 considers the parents' role in helping children practice and apply what they have learned in school. Using a question-answer format, this section explains what homework is, how much homework is to be expected, when and where children should study, how parents can know what their child is supposed to be studying, and what the parent should and should not do. Short lists of learning strategies and learning aids are presented, as well as advice on working with teachers. Section 3 contains tips and guidelines for helping children study different subjects, including reading, writing, speaking, listening, mathematics, science, social studies, and foreign languages. Section 4 offers advice on changing problem situations and provides a list of warning signs and ideas for getting a child back on course. Finally, section 5 stresses the importance to children of their parents' attention and support. (AC)
