Fier, Harriet, Ed.; And Others
The educational objective of this user's guide is to provide parents, teachers, and administrators with a resource to catalyze a wide range of partnerships and projects. Schools work best when everyone is actively involved so as to demonstrate democracy first hand. This program is designed to promote the democratic process of active citizenship in a multicultural society, build skills in communication, recognize the importance of voting, and experience how to build a community through caring and commitment. Suggestions are made for using the videotape "Parents, Teachers and Community: Working Together." Activities to bring people together before viewing the videotape and after viewing the videotape are suggested. Contains an 11-item bibliography. (JAG)
