Godt, Pamela Terry; And Others
This document is the third volume of a three-volume set comprising a workshop leader's guide designed to help in-service providers conduct workshops on early childhood education for teachers, administrators, and others associated with Chapter 1 programs. The guide contains step-by-step procedures for preparing, organizing, and presenting a full-day comprehensive workshop. To allow flexibility in workshop presentation, workshop variations and alternate activities are suggested; in addition, the guide's 10 sections are designed so that they can be expanded or contracted. Volume III of the set, which comprises Sections 8, 9, and 10 of the guide, reviews educational guidelines and standards, and profiles model programs. Section 8 discusses laws and regulations. It contains excerpts from: (1) Chapter 1 law relating to basic programs, the Even Start program, the migrant program, and the handicapped program; (2) the Chapter 1 Policy Manual; and (3) the Migrant Education Policy Manual. The section also contains information sheets on topics including school readiness; literacy programs; and programs for migrant and handicapped children. Section 9 presents educational standards established by several national organizations concerned with young children. These standards pertain to national education, early literacy development, curriculum content, assessment of young children, and evaluation of mathematics learning. Section 10 profiles four sets of model early childhood programs, including Chapter 1 programs and programs for children of migrant families. (BC)
