Actividades Para Padres: A Parent Handbook (Activities for Parents: A Parent Handbook).
Coca, Benjamin
Thirty Mora, New Mexico parents attended a 13-session parent involvement workshop (The Mora Adventure) designed to help parents foster successful school experiences through non-school activities with their children. A parent involvement model was used as the basis of the workshop in which the parents developed more effective communication skills; learned more about Mexican American culture and New Mexico history; discovered, developed, and learned to use educational activities and materials in the home; gained a better comprehension of educational jargon; and learned to evaluate educational materials. The handbook contains a lesson plan outline for each of the 13 sessions which includes goals, necessary materials, and the organization of activities for the session. An additional section contains information for parents about reading, reading readiness, and reading skills such as word attack skills, dictionary use, determining sequence, and drawing inferences. Brief activities and suggested exercises are included for each area. The handbook briefly explains the aims and justification for bilingual/bicultural education. In addition, the handbook contains a glossary of 64 educational terms, a list of 88 abbreviations and acronyms, an extensive list of references, information on the "Coca" model for a parental workshop, and information about materials acquisition.
