Education of Children Aged One to Three: A Curriculum Manual.
Furfey, Paul Hanly, Ed.
This curriculum manual for teaching children aged one to three is a spin-off of the Infant Education Research Project, which studied the effect of intellectual stimulation on the growth of intelligence in a group of culturally deprived infants. The project involved the intensive instruction of a group of male, inner-city infants, who were visited in their homes for one hour a day, five days a week by staff members. The techniques staff members found successful form the contents of the manual, which is divided into four parts: (1) general principles--a period of rapid development, how to work with young children, record keeping; (2) curriculum items--purpose of various activities, levels of difficulty, specific types of items (sensory skills, motor skills, trips, music, art, games and dramatic play, puzzles, numbers, books, sorting, science); (3) case studies--5 children tutored in the IERP; and (4) materials available--books, toys, music, puzzles.
