Curriculum for Early Childhood Education: A Report of a Workshop Held at the Kenya Institute of Education (July 16 to August 3, 1979). Volume 2.
German Foundation for International Development, Bonn (West Germany).
A workshop on "Curriculum for Early Childhood Education," held in the summer of 1979 at the Kenya Institute of Education, aimed to familiarize participants with the problems facing early childhood education in Africa. Specific workshop objectives were (1) to familiarize participants with the psychological, social, political, and economic factors influencing the young African child; (2) to enable participants to apply educational implications inferred from the first objective; and (3) to inculcate necessary skills for designing curriculum for early childhood education in Africa. This document, the second of two volumes on the workshop, presents the proceedings of the practical sessions and examples of the curriculum materials that were developed by participants. The volume is divided into four sections: developing language skills in early childhood; developing scientific, computational, and manipulative skills in early childhood; using local resources and materials for educational toys; and caring for children with special educational needs. Lesson plans are provided as well as instructions for producing classroom materials. The curriculum materials are keyed to the appropriate ages of children. A rationale for each of the different curricula is also presented. (Author/DB)
