Developmentally Appropriate Early Childhood Education: Presenter's Guide for Program Development Workshop.
Stoops, Jack; And Others
A workshop designed to familiarize teachers and administrators with developmentally appropriate issues and practices for use in early childhood education is described in this presenter's guide. The workshop is process-oriented, meaning that participants engage in activities that require them to absorb and share new information. Activities include: (1) presentation of introductory material, resource information, and a summary; (2) exercises in which small groups discuss developmentally appropriate issues and practices and complete surveys about developmentally appropriate programs; and (3) sessions that provide an overview of developmentally appropriate issues and practices and cover the topics of classroom organization and the development of a plan of action for improving developmentally appropriate programs. The guide presents an overall design and purposes for the workshop and a training agenda that lists each activity and the time and materials required for the activity. Also included are individual instruction sheets that give the procedures to be followed during the activity and references to appropriate transparencies and handouts. Copies of the 9 transparencies and 24 handouts used are provided. One of the handouts is an annotated bibliography containing 35 items. Ten lists of resource materials are appended. (BC)
