Lexington Public Schools, MA.
This study guide for use with a 16 mm. film series on the nature of kindergarten children is designed for use in "early childhood" and teacher preparation programs. For each of the seven 4- to 9-minute films in "The Kindergarten Child, Part I," the study guide provides a statement of the key concept around which the film is developed, a 1- or 2-paragraph description of the film (activities being engaged in by two teachers and 20 children), two to four discussion questions, and a list of references. Titles of the films are Organizing the School Day, Group Activities, A Child, Free Play and Music, Discussion, Cleanup, and Playground. For "The Kindergarten Child, Part II. Did you Forget I'm Five?", a 48-minute film of a condensed morning in a kindergarten classroom, the study guide lists 20 references and provides a film description and two to four discussion questions for each of the six 4- to 11-minute episodes. Episodes are entitled Corn Talk (group discussion); Activity Time; Birthday Girls; Cleanup and Corn Eating; Birds, Works, and Playground; and Story and Close of Class. Included also are further notes on kindergarten child development and on the unstructured filming at Eliot-Pearson Laboratory School of Tufts University.
