Vamos juntos a la escuela: Consejos para ayudar a los padres a asegurar el exito academico de sus hijos (Let's Go to School Together: Tips To Help Parents Ensure Their Children's Educational Success). [Videotape Kit].
Information Resource Center (ED), Washington, DC.
Noting research showing that when parents are involved in their children's learning, students achieve more and are less likely to drop out of school, this videotape kit offers Spanish-speaking parents tips to help them become involved in their children's learning, from infancy through adolescence. The kit is intended for use in schools, community-based organizations, and homes. The kit's 18-minute videotape presents real-life vignettes of Latino parents and families dealing with topics such as reading, mathematics, and college preparation. The kit's print materials include a brochure on the "America Goes Back to School" initiative, a brochure on taking advantage of services and information concerning education, and a booklet addressing questions parents have about schooling.
