Chapter 3 lists attributes of parents and teachers that promote parent-teacher partnerships, and explains several paradigms of parent and teacher involvement in family and school. Chapter 4 stresses the importance of establishing partnerships during the child's early years, and warns of the dangers of degrading partnerships for at-risk parents. Chapter 5 suggests a framework for teacher-parent partnerships and offers examples of successful partnership programs. The chapter also suggests partnership strategies, including home visits, training programs, conferences, newsletters, efforts to welcome parents, homework activities, and the involvement of parents in decision making. Chapter 6 addresses the topics of evaluation of partnerships, role conflicts and confrontation within partnerships, cultural differences as learning experiences, and support for at-risk families.

Parents and teachers as discipline shapers by Kevin J Swick( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Parent involvement has been documented as the most effective method of improving student performance in school. This book explores ideas, strategies, and resources that parents and teachers can use in teaming together to facilitate productive student behavior and to deal positively with discipline issues. Parental role in discipline is discussed in terms of three forms of parental influence: (1) on the child's behavior; (2) on the first learning environment; and (3) on the child's attitudes. The discussion of parents and teachers as copartners in discipline focuses on the need, basis, and process for a team approach. Educating parents about discipline is explored by discussing parent education with a discipline focus and orienting parents to the classroom discipline approach. Additionally discussed are strategies for involving parents in discipline and for dealing with special discipline situations. It is concluded that teachers who use parent education and involvement strategies that focus on discipline have found them to be an important ingredient in successful classroom discipline programs. Parent-teacher teaming is indeed a key step toward achieving more productive student behavior. (Rh)
