CHILD DEVELOPMENT TRAINING PROGRAM FOR VOCATIONAL HOME ECONOMICS TEACHERS.
SULEK, HELEN
TWENTY-EIGHT VOCATIONAL HOME ECONOMICS TEACHERS FROM 20 STATES PARTICIPATED IN A 6-WEEK SUMMER WORKSHOP FOR FIVE CREDIT HOURS IN TWO COURSES DEALING WITH CHILD CARE. THE PROGRAM WAS DESIGNED TO PREPARE HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS TO SET UP OCCUPATIONAL CHILD-CARE AIDE TRAINING PROGRAMS AND TO STRENGTHEN THEIR ACADEMIC BACKGROUND IN CHILD DEVELOPMENT AND FAMILY RELATIONS. IN ADDITION TO THE COURSES, LABORATORY EXPERIENCES WITH CHILDREN IN NURSERY SCHOOL AND DAY CARE SETTINGS, FIELD TRIPS TO CHILD CARE AGENCIES, AND A GRADUATE-LEVEL SEMINAR WERE PRESENTED. THE FIRST HALF OF THE SEMINAR DEALT WITH LEARNING ABOUT THE ADOLESCENT GIRL WHO WILL SEEK CHILD CARE TRAINING AND THE LATTER HALF WITH DEVELOPING THE PHILOSOPHY, OBJECTIVES, COURSE CONTENT, AND RESOURCE MATERIALS FOR A CHILD CARE TRAINING PROGRAM. MATERIALS DEVELOPED WERE "A CHILD CARE TRAINING PROGRAM,""ORIENTATION TO CHILD CARE EMPLOYMENT," AND "DEVELOPMENT OF JOB SKILLS FOR WORK WITH YOUNG CHILDREN." EACH UNIT IN THE LAST TWO HAS SUGGESTED CONTENT, LEARNING EXPERIENCES, RESOURCES, AND A BIBLIOGRAPHY. FOLLOWUP EVALUATION IN LATE 1966 SHOWED THAT NINE CHILD CARE TRAINING PROGRAMS WERE IN OPERATION, THREE OTHERS WERE IN THE PLANNING STAGE, AND SIX OTHER COMMUNITIES HAD INDICATED A NEED AND WERE PLANNING EVENTUAL DEVELOPMENT OF SUCH PROGRAMS. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT A 6-WEEK SUMMER WORKSHOP IS A MINIMAL BUT PRACTICAL AND EFFECTIVE MEANS OF ASSISTING TEACHERS IN SETTING UP WAGE-EARNING CLASSES AND UPDATING THEIR KNOWLEDGE. (FP)
