Parent Time Curriculum Guide: A Learning Activities Guide for the PACE Family Literacy Program.
This curriculum guide presents learning activities for use by facilitators in Parent Time sessions in the Family Literacy Program, a part of Kentucky's Parent and Child Educational Program (PACE). In Parent Time sessions, PACE instructors share information with parents, and parents practice family life skills. The learning activities used in the sessions are designed to build and develop parent competency, self-esteem, and skills; help parents appreciate, become familiar with, and encourage learning; and help parents improve their relationship with their children. The learning activities are also intended to promote four key skills: decision-making, communicating, using information, and problem solving. Introductory and overview sections of the guide outline the purpose, goals, and methods of the activities, and provide guidance to group facilitators. The six sections of the guide present the learning activities, each focusing on one of the key roles of parents as: (1) persons; (2) parents; (3) students; (4) family members; (5) community members; and (6) workers. Each of the descriptions of the activities typically discusses the background and objectives of the activity, preparation for the activity, and the procedure for conducting the activity. (TM)
