Parenting Resource Book.

This document contains a project report and a parenting resource book of materials for use in family and other adult basic and literacy education programs. The project report details how focus groups were conducted to determine the interests of adults in family literacy classes. Ten categories of interest were identified and materials were collected or developed for inclusion in either part one, instructional materials on a low reading level for use with students, or part two, an annotated bibliography of additional resources for students and teachers, of the book. Findings indicated teachers found the materials a useful resource; students felt the materials addressed their needs or, in cases where more extensive information was sought, the materials provided good introductory information on a topic. The nine-page final report is accompanied by the parenting resource book which consists of two sections. Part 1 contains materials that were collected or developed to respond to the interests expressed by students in seven family literacy classes. These brief materials--lists, articles, and fact sheets--are divided into 10 categories: child development, communication, discipline, formal education, health--adults, health--children, informal learning, parenting, pregnancy, safety, and values. Part 2 is an annotated bibliography of 50 resource materials. Each entry provides author, title, source, date, and number of pages. (YLB)
