A Competency Base for Curriculum Development in Preschool Education.
Troutt, George, Jr.; Jennings, Bettye
The development of a competency base for a preschool curriculum is described in this report on the Home-Oriented Preschool Education (HOPE) Process, a three-component educational system for 3, 4, and 5-year-old children. The major goal of the HOPE Process is to affect the parent-child instructional relationship by delivering the curriculum through different but integrated components: a home visit, a television presentation, and a group experience. The home visitor, a paraprofessional, helps the parent learn effective ways of instructing children. Television presentations, broadcast five days each week, are produced to achieve specific objectives derived from the curriculum, and the group experience is conducted by a group experience leader and is designed to achieve objectives for a classroom type situation. Objectives are coordinated with home visit and television presentation objectives. (Author)
