School Success Takes Teamwork: Taming the Homework Monster. Successful Parenting. Facilitator's Guide. Part Five.
Taylor, Barbara Lynn
Intended for parent educators, this facilitator's guide outlines a parent workshop on helping children with homework. The guide first presents a framework for both a 1-hour and 2-hour workshop, based on a companion video. The remainder of the guide corresponds to the video, presenting suggestions for discussion prior to and after viewing the video, and questions geared to specific sections of the video. The 19-minute video presents suggestions for parents, divided by grade level (K-1, 2-5, middle school, and high school), on helping their children complete homework assignments and major projects. Areas covered include the study environment, reading and math, communicating with a child's teachers, and adolescent development. (HTH)
