Teaching-Learning Units in Child Development.
Arizona Association of Future Homemakers of America, Phoenix.; Arizona State Dept. of Vocational Education, Phoenix.
This guide is for teacher use in planning instructional materials for elementary and secondary level child development classes. It was developed by elementary and secondary teachers, teacher educators, and state supervisors and was tested by classroom teachers. The suggested time allotment is a minimum of 6 weeks per unit. The age of the children whose development is being studied is the basis for content organization. The units, each on different colored paper, are (1) Conception-to-Two Years which is for advanced level students who will be more immediately concerned with this area, (2) Two-through-Five Years, and (3) Six-through-Twelve Years. Both of the latter were planned for use at either the beginning or intermediate level, depending upon the responsibility typically assumed by home economics students working with children and the availability of children for observation and participation experiences. Each unit contains a topical outline of content. Each section of the topical outline includes major objectives stated in levels of learning, conceptual statements, an illustrative series of learning experiences, an illustrative series of evaluation experiences, teaching materials, and references for students and teachers. Each unit is self-contained and not dependent upon previous study in child development. A bibliography is included in the appendix. (FP)
