Parents as Models. Make the Parent Connection! Leader Guide.
Moke, Susan, Ed.; Shermis, Michael, Ed.
This manual is a resource book for organizers and leaders and parent groups who want to explore specific strategies to use in modeling the kind of behavior that will help children do better in school. The guide contains material necessary to conduct a 1- or 1.5-hour session which reinforces the idea that parents are their children's most influential models for good learning habits, especially for reading and writing. The guide includes: (1) a leader's guide with presentation notes and a variety of activities for the session; (2) a reproducible written invitation for teachers to send home to parents; (3) handout masters; (4) 25 bookmarks; and (5) information about other products and services that will help foster parent involvement. A booklet containing relevant read-aloud stories, an audio tape, and a loose-leaf folder accompany the guide. (RS)
