Parenting: A Social Perspective. Instructional Plan.
Herscovitch, Nella
On the premise that formal parent education courses may improve parental attitudes and competence, provide needed support, and reverse the trend of social problems faced by our children, this instructional plan describes a university course on parenting for graduate and undergraduate students which incorporates a cooperative learning approach to explore parenting issues and to promote effective parenting skills. Although the skill-oriented concepts of cooperative learning, skill-building, and attitudinal change comprise the core of the course, an understanding of the theoretical concepts of adult learning principles, cultural and societal influences, approaches and models, self awareness, parental roles and family structures and functions are also emphasized. Described in the instructional plan are the course learning outcomes, instructional strategies related to each learning outcome, evaluation of student learning and course instruction, course outline and schedule, and course bibliography. Five appendices describe course assignments and the contract grading system. (KDFB)
