Reading Under the Influence (of Parents)
Ask any teacher and they’ll tell you that the relationship with a child’s parents is often as important to learning as the teacher-student relationship. Treasure Bay Publishing has a new primer on making the most of this often ignored area. In “Involving Parents in their Children’s Reading Development: A Guide for Teachers,” Bruce Johnson shows how parental input and encouragement can make all the difference. The $20 118-page book is supplemented with an included CD and Web site.
