Coleman, Joyce H.
This Child Development Associate (CDA) training module, the fifteenth in a series of 16, focuses on preparing trainees in a bilingual/bicultural preschool teacher training program for their administrative responsibilities as CDA staff members. The first section briefly discusses verbal, non-verbal and tactile communication and suggests five principles related to effective staff communication. The second section identifies the responsibilities of and requirements for different positions in a CDA program. The third section discusses recordkeeping and provides samples of records used by CDA staff (e.g., attendance records and requisition forms). The fourth section explains how to acquire classroom materials and suggests sources for these materials. The fifth section discusses the usefulness of evaluations and the different forms they can take. The module includes trainee learning activities, and a pretest and a posttest of the trainee's understanding of the material. The module focuses on the specific behaviors which directly relate to CDA Competency 6. (BH)
