Parenting Curriculum for Language Minority Parents [Korean]
Grace D. Holt
This guide for minority language parents whose primary language is Korean presents parenting information to supplement a course in English as a Second Language. It focuses on topics parents must deal with in meeting the needs of their children. Vocabulary and practice drills are presented for activities in the following areas: (1) education and dealing with the school system; (2) parenting; (3) nutrition; (4) mathematics; (5) health; (6) safety; and (7) citizenship. The section on education provides information on school organization, registration, forms that must be completed, communication with teachers, and reading student report cards. The parenting skills emphasized are those of interacting with children and of coping with systems that can have an impact on children, such as the public library. Illustrations present scenarios of everyday activities with discussion questions in the primary language. In most instances, parallel English and Korean exercises are provided.

Intended User Audience:
This material was developed to provide information regarding both parenting techniques and relevant English vocabulary and useful expressions for Korean parents with young children. It is intended for parents who are learning English as a second language and who are getting ready to send their children to school in the U.S. This material is developed for both literate and non-literate parents to provide variety of information related to educating their child in the U.S education system. Professionals, especially teachers, may also benefit from the teacher's guide.
This material was developed by The Cross Cultural Resource Center, California State University with funding (ESEA Title VII Family English Literacy Projects) from the Office of Bilingual Education and Minority Languages Affairs of the US Department of Education.
The content of the text was field tested by the bilingual facilitators of the
Sacramento-Stockton Family English Literacy Project (FELP) in order to identify any cultural biases. It was also field-tested by ESL instructors, who made suggestions about coordinating the ESL and parenting components. In addition, many books and materials were used as resources to provide techniques and content for classes in ESL (see page IV for reference information).
Approximately 200 copies have been disseminated in California and some of the eastern states annually.
