Parents Assuring Student Success (PASS): Achievement Made Easy by Learning Together.
Ban, John R.
The Parents Assuring Student Success (PASS) program draws on the talents and energies of parents to assist educators in raising educational standards for every child. The first part of the manual teaches parents what it takes to become an effective learner. The focus is on study skills, including well-known learning strategies. The second part of the manual gives parents the opportunity to acquire skills in teaching and reinforcing critical student study habits at home. Parents can study the PASS modules at home or meet in workshop groups conducted by a variety of parent education organizations. Such workshops should be geared to neighborhoods, be planned by a parent team, include social as well as learning activities, and target needy parents. Workshop modules encompass the following topics: (1) parent attitude; (2) structuring the home environment; (3) study skills; (4) homework and learning expediters; (5) note-taking skills; (6) helping children prepare for tests; (7) memory enhancement and developing thinking skills; and (8) teaching reading skills. This manual has been designed particularly for use with parents in urban school systems. (SLD)
