Child Development Guide.
Richardson, J. Lynne; Garfield, Nancy
The Education for Parenthood Child Development Guide is designed to encourage Girl Scouts to choose various activities relating to: observing and working with children; drawing conclusions based on their own experiences and evidence; choosing their own activities and projects; collecting their own evidence on child development; creating projects and putting them into action; and sharing their experiences and ideas with children, adults, and teens. The guide is divided into four units: infancy, childhood years, helping children learn, and children and love. Each unit opens with a starting line, followed by descriptions of numerous activities with accompanying options which provide specific supportive exercises. Provided with the activities are "How-to's" giving suggestions for what to do, where to find resources, and how to carry out activities. Each activity and option is accompanied by Advisor/Leader Notes, giving various suggestions and hints on what the leader can do to encourage choice, understanding, and involvement. Each unit concludes with a list of suggested projects. Appended to the guide are lists of resource materials (films, readings, and other materials. (Author/BP)
