Reaching all families : the Federal initiative in family-school partnerships by Oliver C Moles( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Partnership for Family Involvement in Education is a U.S. Department of Education initiative begun in 1994 to assist families with children's learning by developing national and local family-school-community collaborations. This paper discusses the rationale for the Partnership, including research on family, school, and community collaborations; the nature and status of the Partnership; and how research is linked to its ongoing activities. In discussing the rationale for the Partnership, the paper points to research showing that family involvement is a critical link to high-quality education, and then discusses obstacles to involvement, the school's role, the community's role, and new national laws. The paper then provides an overview of Partnership structure and activities, including Partnership promises, which are pledges of action developed by each steering committee based on a statement of common purpose; conferences; publications, including the "America Goes Back to School" activity kit, various booklets, "Preparing Your Child for College, which is a resource book for parents, and "Community Update," a monthly bulletin of the Department of Education that covers recent developments in its major programs. Also discussed is the Read*Write*Now! Program to combat the decline over the summer in students' reading skills. The paper concludes with an overview of ongoing research meant to provide baseline data and to track the Partnership's progress. The Partnership for Family Involvement in Education is an instructive example of relationships between public policy and educational research. (Contains 25 references.) (Lpp)
The home-school connection : selected partnership programs in large cities by Carter H Collins( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unusual because they involve students above the primary level, the programs described in this report are designed to involve parents more fully in the education of their children. Presented are 28 programs in grades 4-12 initiated by school systems in large cities and operating during the 1980-81 school year. Information about the programs was gathered through telephone conversations and through visits to seven programs. School systems were asked to provide information on programs that might help parents act in educational capacities, such as home tutors, monitors of homework and attendance, or guides for their children in the use of community educational resources. A general discussion section highlights salient features from all programs, promising practices, components of a comprehensive program, and strategies for program development. The 28 program profiles include program objectives, major activities, staffing, target populations, funding, evaluations, materials available, and the name of a contact person. The seven in-depth reports resulting from site visits cover each program's objectives, rationale, development, operation, cost and personnel information, supporting and inhibiting factors, evidence of success, and other areas. A table classifying the main characteristics of each program assists readers in locating programs of interest. (Author/JM)

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

School-initiated activities to change the home educational environment can strongly influence student learning, even in schools serving low-income and minority families. This sourcebook shows various ways that schools can take the initiative in reaching out and working with families as equal partners; and explores how family life, school programs, teacher practices, and district policies can help build home-school partnerships for learning. The following five workshops give urban educators new data and strategies for working with parents of elementary school students in kindergarten through grade 6: (1) "Families as Learning Environments"; (2) "School Programs and Practices"; (3) "Communication Skills and Strategies"; (4) "Homework and Home Learning Activities"; and (5) "School District Policies and Supports for Home-School Partnerships." The workshops emphasize home-school partnerships, home learning activities (homework, leisure reading, family discussions, and other home activities that supplement and reinforce schoolwork), home learning environments, and family strengths. Each workshop contains a leader's guide (a workshop overview, notes on needed preparations, background information, and ways of conducting each workshop activity), transparency masters, and a workbook for participants. An appendix presents information on further strategies to reach and involve parents; Federal Government programs; and information about urban families of diverse nationalities and different racial and ethnic backgrounds; and annotated lists of readings and resource organizations.

Trends in divorce and effects on children by Oliver C Moles( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper an attempt is made to present a comprehensive picture of the effects of separation and divorce on children. After information on trends in divorce is presented to indicate how many families and children are involved, three comprehensive reviews of one-parent families are discussed. Because some detrimental effects are associated with father absence, literature focused on family relationships and conditions of family life is reviewed to locate possible explanations for these effects. Topics explored include reasons for father absence, family conflict, parent/child relationships, financial resources of parents, and social supports. Factors accounting for the discrepancy between ability and school performance among children from one-parent families are suggested in a brief review of selected, recent studies. In conclusion, research needs in several areas related to children in one-parent families are pointed out. (Author/RH)
