Early Childhood/CDA Learning Modules: A Competency-Based Training Program for Classroom Personnel in Preschool Programs.
Beaty, Janice J.
This training manual for early childhood CDA candidates provides 21 learning modules on the following subjects: field trips, books, parent involvement, setting up the classroom, the role of play, creative expression (art), preschool science, cooking, self-image, large motor development, speaking and listening skills, daily program planning, small motor coordination, creative expression (music), health and safety, preschool math, discipline and self-control, pre-reading skills, individual child within the group, teamwork in the classroom, and observing and recording children's behavior. Each module establishes general and specific objectives for the trainee, identifies related resource materials (such as films, books and multimedia packages), suggests learning activities, provides guides for trainee assessment, and offers question sheets based on the suggested resource materials. Basic CDA competency areas are listed. A checklist of classroom competencies which are keyed to both basic competency areas and related learning modules is provided. Slide-tape programs to be used with each module are listed, and addresses of sources of slides and filmstrips are indicated. (RH)
