Helping Your Child Succeed in School, with Activities for Children Ages 5 through 11.
Department of Education, Washington, DC. Office of Intergovernmental and Interagency Affairs.
At the heart of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 is a promise to raise standards for all children and to help all children meet those standards. This booklet provides information that parents can use to help their child succeed in school. Following an introduction, the second section of the booklet, "The Basics," offers suggestions for parents to help their child make the most of out-of-school time, such as encouraging their child to read, talking with their child, monitoring homework, and monitoring television viewing and video-game playing. The third and largest section of the booklet presents specific parent-child activities arranged by approximate child age levels. Each activity lists its goal, benefits to children, materials needed, and step-by-step instructions. The fourth section answers parents' questions about sharing information with teachers and other school staff. The final section offers "do's and don'ts" about tests and testing. The booklet concludes with a list of educational resources. (HTH)
