A Cooperative Learning Model for Parents.
Edel-Herscovitch, Nella
This paper advances a model for the use of parents in the implementation of cooperative learning strategies in the home, so that parents can join with teachers in providing a quality education for their children. The main principles of the model include teaching parents how to: (1) encourage their children by providing adequate opportunities for cooperative involvement in the family; (2) change their own behavior as the only way to change their children's behavior; (3) improve parent-child communication; (4) use problem-solving and conflict resolution skills; (5) help their children with school assignments and homework; (6) build their child's self-esteem; and (7) help children make responsible choices. The paper includes a literature review of parenting models and cooperative learning, a comparison between traditional and cooperative paradigms of teaching and parenting, and a description of a parent education program based on the cooperative model.
