    1. 1. C.A.R.PHomework Workshop: A Bridge Between Leonardtown Elementary and the Community<br />Leonardtown Elementary:<br />Alexia, Julia, Ben, Connie and Philip<br />
    2. 2. Justification of our Project<br />S.I.P: SMCPS Master Goal #6: Increased communication, collaboration, and partnerships with all stakeholders.<br />Observed at the school: <br />some parents don’t sign their child’s planners every evening <br />some children may lack homework support at home.<br />At Back-To-School night, some parents expressed surprise at some resources that we use in the classroom.<br />
    3. 3. Concern and Population<br />Concern: Not all parents are fully included in their child’s education, homework time, and school culture.<br />Population: as a pilot program, we are planning on directly targeting our own classroom parents. If this works, this evening will hopefully be put into place for the entire school <br />
    4. 4. Our Strategy:<br />Homework Workshop!<br />Each of our classrooms, depending on our mentor teacher’s willingness to participate, would host a Homework Workshop. <br />We would invite parents to come to the classroom in the evening.<br />We would have a packet of homework strategies and external sources available.<br />
    5. 5. Our Research<br />Harris, A. and J. Goodall (2008). "Do parents know they matter? engaging all parents in learning." Educational Research 50(3): 277-289.<br />"Schools need to make the shift to encouraging parental engagement in learning in the home through providing levels of guidance and support which enable such engagement to take place.“<br />
    6. 6. Our Research<br />Hein, D. L., & Wimer, S. L. (2007). Improving homework completion and motivation of middle school students through behavior modification, graphing, and parent communication. Online Submission. Retrieved from http://search.ebscohost.com/<br />Parents really seemed to appreciate the feedback provided. Parents claimed that there would be things that they would change about the intervention, but they would keep the constant communication. <br />
    7. 7. Our Research<br />Tam, V. C., & Chan, R. M. (2009). Parental involvement in primary children's homework in Hong Kong. School Community Journal, 19(2), 81-100.<br />Children in the primary grades typically experience more academic success with quality parental involvement. <br />
    8. 8. Research Questions<br />To what extent does homework night develop the relationship between parents and the school?<br />To what extent does homework night increase parents' awareness and knowledge of student homework?<br />To what extent does homework night change the parents' views of their role in student homework?<br />
    9. 9. Data collection plan<br />
    10. 10. Pre/Post Tests<br />*Please see handout<br />
    11. 11. Detailed Description of Strategy<br />Each of our classrooms, depending on our mentor teacher’s willingness to participate, would host an individual Homework Workshop. <br />We would invite parents to come to the classroom in the evening.<br />We would have a packet of homework strategies and external sources available.<br />
    12. 12. Detailed Description of Strategy<br />During the Homework Workshop, we would discuss:<br />Planners<br />Where students keep their homework<br />What kind of homework we assign<br />Strategies that we use for specific subjects in the classroom.<br />How to get extra work or resources at home.<br />
    13. 13. Results<br />
    14. 14. Quantitative Data: Pre-Tests<br />N: 25 <br />(5 third graders,<br />20 fifth graders)<br />
    15. 15. Quantitative Data: Pre-Post Test Analysis<br />One additional question that was added onto the Post-test was asking about the effectiveness of the evening. The mean of the rating on this question was a 3.83 out of 4, demonstrating that our evening was effective. <br />
    16. 16.
    17. 17.
    18. 18. Qualitative Data<br />
    19. 19. Comments<br />All of the comments were related to homework<br />3 out of 5 parents wanted resources to help with homework<br />1 parent felt they should not intervene with homework<br />1 parent wants more homework sent home <br />
    20. 20. Response after the Evening<br />Parent Response<br />E-mail<br />Went home and discussed the evening with their child<br />The child echoed many of the same things and strategies that we had discussed in the evening.<br />Found the evening “insightful”<br />Follow-up<br />Remembered the discussion <br />Found an article to support their side.<br />Sent the article in with their child for the teacher the next day. <br />
    21. 21. Possible Reasons for Low Attendance<br />Rainy night<br />Homework is clearly outlined in a daily agenda so parents may have felt they did not need additional information.<br />Time of day due to parent work schedule, other children at home, and so on.<br />Parents who have the less developed relationships with the school may be less compelled to come to an event at the school.<br />Those who need support with their students' homework or feel thatthey should have a low role in homework are less likely to have found or seen the questionnaire because it was located with the homework.<br />The letter sent home was signed only by interns, not teachers oradministration.<br />
