The curriculum presented in this document involves a set of learning activities whereby parents can help children increase school achievement. The program emphasizes the idea that when families learn together a bridge of shared knowledge and caring is established between generations. Numerous activities, called "recipes for learning," make use of daily occurrences in such surroundings as the home, the supermarket, and the neighborhood. These learning activities provide a "dual-focus curriculum"; that is, adults learn while they are teaching children. Skill areas for children, geared for specific age groups, are reading and mathematics. Adult skill areas include health and safety, consumer economics, community resources, occupational knowledge, and citizenship. Tips for good results are provided. (Author/DB)
