The Essential Parent Workshop Resource. The Teacher's Idea Book 4.
Fourth in a series designed to provide early childhood educators with ideas and strategies for applying High/Scope principles, this idea book focuses on working with the parents of young children and presents 30 one-hour parent workshops in five areas. The book's introduction presents guiding principles for working with adult learners, discusses how the workshops reflect the High/Scope preschool curriculum, offers basic workshop presentation tips, and details the structure for each workshop. Each workshop is presented in the same format, listing intended goals, needed materials, introduction and interactive opening activity, central ideas for discussion, scenarios for reflection and application of ideas, and follow-up plans. The five areas covered by the workshops are: (1) active learning; (2) daily routine; (3) learning environment; (4) adult-child interaction; and (5) special topics, including traveling with children, toy selection, family rules, and parental teamwork.
