Course on Early Childhood Education (October 5, 1980 - March 5, 1981). Report.
Mount Carmel International Training Centre for Community Services, Haifa (Israel).
A 5-month program conducted in Israel for persons active in early childhood education is described in this report. The program, designed to present an overall view of early childhood education, was tailored to the experience and background of participants. Lectures were devoted to such topics as child psychology, teaching methods, curriculum development, principles of supervision, teacher training, adult education, individual development within society, special education, natural science, nutrition, and consumer education. Visits to early childhood centers augmented many of the theoretical aspects of the curriculum and provided a means for applying theory to particular situations. Visits were also made to places of general and professional interest, including several institutes of higher education, the Ministry of Education, instructional support centers, the Educational Television Center, a comprehensive primary school, day care centers, a center concerned with preventive health care, and a center for services to disturbed children. Students submitted a final paper on a topic selected from a list of problems in social, emotional, and cognitive development, learning processes, behavior, and language acquisition. (Author/DB)
