The "Message from the Dean" in this week's newsletter references two important articles on the effects of parent behaviors on students. One is a rather lengthy and technical study on what type of parent involvement creates a postive impact on student acheivement, and what type of involvement does not. I have posted a copy here. The second, a short review of literature pertaining specifically to parent behaviors which promote reading, can be found here.
