Doing Your Part To Help Your Child Become SMART (Successful, Motivated, Autonomous, Responsible, Thoughtful): Six Workshops on Parenting SMART Learners.
Sattes, Beth; Walsh, Jackie; Hickman, Mickey
A SMART Learner is a lifelong learner who can adapt to rapid change and who possesses characteristics associated with success in and out of school. These workshop materials to help parents help their children become SMART learners provide: information from current research and best practice; learning activities that will actively engage parents in thinking and talking about important issues; time for parents to share with other parents; and activities for parents to take home to share with their children. The workshop materials begin with evaluation instruments for parents and assessment guides for facilitators. These are followed by materials for an overview workshop on SMART learners. The remaining materials are for the workshops specific to each area of the SMART acronym: Successful, Motivated, Autonomous, Responsible, and Thoughtful. Each area includes facilitator notes for activities and handouts for parents. (HTH)
