Teach Your Children: Learning Differences. Final Report.
Fisher, Allison L.; Willard, Penny
A three-part series of evening workshops was designed to help adult basic education (ABE) parents identify learning styles and develop communication and advocacy skills, assertiveness, and self-esteem. At the workshops, instructors from the center presented an adaptation of curriculum on self-esteem for parenting developed by the Center for Literacy in Philadelphia. The workshops also included learning activities, discussions, and guest speakers who encouraged parents to recognize learning skills and develop advocacy and communication techniques. According to pre- and postassessment data regarding the 18 parents, the workshops provided parents with information that they could use with their children in identifying learning styles and improving study habits, and it helped them improve their self-esteem and advocacy skills. (Appendixes constituting approximately 80% of this document contain the following for each workshop: workshop outline, handouts, learning activities, worksheets, participant evaluation form, and the precourse/postcourse questionnaire.)
