Child Care, Volume I. Vocational Home Economics Education. Revised.
Benson, Ann; Goodman, Debbie Truitt
This teaching guide is designed for eleventh- or twelfth-grade consumer, homemaking, and occupational child care students in Oklahoma. This in-depth study is designed to provide basic knowledge of child development and to develop skills ncecssary to care for children. In this volume attention is focused on employment in child care occupations, ways children develop, child health, first aid and nutrition, and information and activities in guiding children's behavior and meeting the needs of special age groups. These topics are covered in 16 units, which are organized into 5 sections, in a standard format developed for use in Oklahoma in 1970. This format includes eight basic components which form a unit of instruction: performance objectives, suggested activities for the teacher, information sheets, assignment sheets, job sheets, transparency masters, tests, and answers to tests and assignment sheets. Each unit of instruction is based on the performance needed for successful employment in an occupational area. The materials are developed for use in an eighteen-week in-depth course offering or in a four-semester occupational child care program. Materials are suitable for duplication and hand-out to students; or a student version is available. (KC)
