Texas State Dept. of Community Affairs, Austin. Office of Early Childhood Development.
This description of a model curriculum comprises the second part of a series of three documents which together constitute a guide to the training of the Bilingual-Bicultural Child Development Associate (CDA) Trainer. An initial introduction provides an overview of CDA and the curriculum design. The following major areas of concern in replicating the model program are mapped out: general criteria, program administration, faculty preparation, scheduling, student preparation, quality control and institutionalization, training plans and curriculum evaluation. The major portion of the document provides learning modules based on four subject areas: child development, language, culture and leadership. Components of each module include: a definition of the purpose and objectives, suggested learning activities, a pretest and posttest, a written evaluation of the module, conferences with the CDA competency trainers, and selected resources. Lists of suggested resources for CDA training, additional bilingual-bicultural resources and films and books are appended. (CM)
