Child Development Center Curriculum: Child Program for the Early Childhood-Special Education Teacher Preparation Program. Monograph 2.
Mann, Marlis E.; And Others
This monograph describes the curriculum of the child development center of the Early Childhood-Special Education Teacher Preparation Program. The center provides a model preschool program in which teacher trainees work with children, ages 2-6, (several of whom have developmental deficiencies). The curriculum is designed to help teacher trainees organize the learning environment for an experience-centered curriculum, which allows children to explore knowledge in an interdisciplinary and multisensory way. Various aspects of the curriculum's theoretical rationale are discussed. Desired outcomes and growth sequences for the developmental areas covered by the curriculum (language, cognitive, motor, and social) are presented in detail, along with the procedures for assessing and measuring the child's growth in these areas, and the variety of strategies and materials available to the teacher for directing the child's development.
