The first chapter describes programs that demonstrate the ways in which parents can be involved in the education of their children of 1 to 5 years of age. A list of 10 approaches for involving parents in their children's early education is included. The second chapter discusses the topics of: (1) improving communication between home and school; (2) helping parents work with their children at home; (3) involving parents in school activities; (4) developing collaborative planning among parents, students, and teachers; and (5) empowering parents to become decisionmakers in their children's schools.

Parents want to be supportive of math education. But they often feel frustration when they don't recognize the kind of instruction their children are getting and can't help them at home. The best way to guide parents toward an understanding of how their kids are learning is by engaging them in the very same mathematics students are experiencing at school. With the Supporting School Mathematics series, you'll find six comprehensive workshop modules for effectively engaging with parents or any stakeholder in mathematics education. Understanding Multiplication Across the Grades is designed to help parents learn about how multiplication can be taught for understanding.Parents experience ways to teach multiplication in important and engaging mathematical contexts such as probability, geometry and data analysis.Fun and engaging ways to provide practice with basic facts are highlighted.The difference between a focus on rote memorization and a focus on knowing and understanding is highlighted.The content of this session is appropriate for teachers and parents of grades 3 - 8, and students of grades 4 - 8. Each of the six sessions of Supporting School Mathematics each use explicit, thorough, hands-on examples to illustrate how key aspects of your math curriculum work. Parents will come to understand: what it means to teach for understanding and how meaningful, challenging, and engaging this type of learning is why and how the focus of instruction is different than traditional mathematics teaching how basic facts are both explicitly and implicitly addressed how to extend to home what students learn at school. Each Supporting School Mathematics package includes everything you need to conduct a successful parent workshop: a planning handbook that offers general advice on presenting mathematical content and even provides you a Q-and-A section featuring the questions you are most likely to get and good answers to them a module that includes scripts, content-specific talking points, overheads, and handouts that help audience members understand how their children are learning and discover new ways of helping them at home a CD that contains ready-to-print files for the overheads as well as printable versions of the handouts in both English and Spanish. The six workshops in the Supporting School Mathematics series help you demonstrate for parents the most important aspects of any mathematics curriculum: Helping with Math at Home: Ideas for Parents Helping with Math at Home: More Ideas for Parents Understanding Addition and Subtraction Across the Grades Understanding Multiplication Across the Grades Understanding Fractions Across the Grades Encouraging Mathematical Thinkers: The Basics and More Gain parents' support by using Supporting School Mathematics to introduce them to high-quality, student-centered mathematics instruction.

This training guide is intended to enhance the skills of Head Start education staff so they can accurately and objectively observe, record, and interpret young children's behavior and make thoughtful decisions about program planning for each child. Each of the modules in the guide details module outcomes, key concepts, and background information. Module 1 assists participants in identifying and using a variety of observational methods, matching observation goals to observation techniques, and writing a running record accurately and objectively. Module 2 addresses overcoming observation challenges and provides staff members with practice in identifying and challenging their personal biases, which could interfere with conducting and recording observations objectively. Module 3 addresses enhancing staff's ability to involve parents in the observation process and work with them as partners. Module 4 addresses interpreting and using observation results, and serves to increase staff's ability to make valid inferences and draw meaningful conclusions from collected observation data. Contains resources. Five appendices provide sample observation records, a description of observation instruments, and other information. (SD)
