Summary

This manual was designed to provide a resource and planning guide for community involvement in education and for conducting parent education workshops. Early parent involvement and the interrelationship between career decisions, course selections in school, and academic performance is emphasized. Part 1, "Information for Parents," discusses ways that parents and other community members can become involved in education, and presents information that citizens should know about academic competencies, career planning, and the reasons for and uses of testing in the educational process. Part 2, "Subjects Students Should Study," presents information about the basic academic competencies students should master and the subjects they should take in high school and why they should take them. The subjects are: (1) the Arts; (2) Foreign Language; (3) Mathematics; (4) English; (5) Science; and (6) Social Studies. Each section outlines the following information: (1) subject area content; (2) goals; (3) relationship to other subject areas; and (4) background information. Part 2 also offers guidance to parents on how they can supplement classroom instruction with activities in the home and community. Part 3, "Planning and Conducting a Parent/Community Workshop," gives information on planning and conducting workshops to help parents and others develop the knowledge and skills they need to become involved effectively in education. Part 4, "Resource Materials," consists of additional information on helping with homework and test preparation, and includes a partial list of organizations that can be contacted for help, free or inexpensive materials for use in the home, reading materials for children of all ages, and information about college admissions. Appendixes provide: (1) additional information on tests; (2) a suggested agenda for parent/community workshops; (3) a workshop evaluation form; and (4) an 18-item selected bibliography. (FMW)
