Families & School. Best of "set."
Podmore, Valerie N., Ed.; Richards, Llyn, Ed.
Published to celebrate the United Nations' International Year of the Family, this special issue presents selected articles from "set," a twice yearly journal of research information for teachers. These articles look at the contribution of educational research on the relationships between schools and families, and families and learning in Australia and New Zealand. There are two new items: "Pause, Prompt, Praise: Seventeen Years On," written by Ted Glynn especially for this "Best of 'set,'" and an item by Stuart McNaughton about new research on reading to pre-schoolers at home. The articles are arranged into four topics: families' resources and configurations, cooperation between schools and parents; children's well being, and reading in the home. Following an introduction by Valerie N. Podmore, the 14 articles are: (1) "Children's Use of the Resources Families Provide" (Gay Ochiltree and Paul Amato); (2) "Poverty and Performance" (Christine Wilson and Ann Dupuis); (3) "What Joyce Learnt from Her Mother," on the differences between talk at school and at home (Barbara Tizard); (4) "Step-Families" (Ruth Webber); (5) "Transition to School" (Margery Renwick); (6) "The Too Hard Basket," on closing the gap between parent and teacher expectations (Cathy Wylie); (7) "Parents Teaching in Schools" (Jacqueline McGilp); (8) "Keeping Ourselves Safe" (Freda Briggs); (9) "Educational Strategies for Chronically Ill Students" (Katherine Rowe and others); (10) "Is More of the Same Better?" on grade repetition (Diana Kenny); (11) "Family Violence: Its Effects on Children and Schools" (John Church); (12) "Pause Prompt and Praise," on a program for parents to assist with remedial reading at home (Ted Glynn); (13) "Reading to Pre-schoolers: Models of Tutoring" (Stuart McNaughton); and (14) "TV and Homework" (Mallory Wober).
