Home Management 7: Child Care Unit. Course Objectives, Content Analysis, Supporting Objectives and Content Generalizations.
Erickson, Susan, Comp.; Martin, Joan, Ed.
These curriculum materials represent a child care unit in a home management program which is concerned with consumer and family studies. The curriculum unit is designed to help young adolescents work successfully with small children. A career focus, that of baby sitter or child caregiver, forms the unit's conceptual framework. This publication contains course objectives, content analysis, supporting objectives, and generalizations. The objectives are coded as to major emphases: consumer education (C), cultural awareness (CA), human potential (HP), and career education (CE). The content analysis focuses on nine major areas: caring for young children; business responsibilities when caring for young children; growth and development of children through play, selection, and use of play materials; children's routines; safety with young children; caring for children with special needs; developing self understanding; and child care careers. Suggested time sequences are provided for each area. The remainder, and major portion, of the materials are devoted to course objectives and content generalizations. For example, the first objective is to project values that could result from caring for children (HP and CE emphases), and the related first content generalization states that when teenagers are skillful in caring for children, the children, the children's parents, and the teenagers benefit from the experience.
