Parents-as-Partners-as-Learners Guide.
Fear, Marion
This guide provides information on the Parents-as-Partners-as-Learners project that is designed to encourage a love of reading in children and to increase communication between the home and school. Section A is an overview of the four phases of the project that are initiated by an adult literacy animator (facilitator) in a primary school: Phase I, negotiating with the schools; Phase II, developing the project with the teacher--defining roles, planning the project; Phase III, implementing the project--announcing it to the class, the parent meeting, ongoing communication between teacher and animator, home visits; and Phase IV, reporting back. Section B discusses the origins and development of the project in the Eastern Townships School Board. Section C addresses how to become an animator. It covers basic requirements and making home visits. Section D makes recommendations regarding teachers and parents. Appendixes include a list of 29 references for further reading, results of the 1987-88 project, and project materials. (YLB)
