Developmental Learning Process. A Performance-Based Early Childhood-Special Education Teacher Preparation Program. Monograph No. 5.
This module, used in the Early Childhood-Special Education Teacher Preparation Program at the University of Virginia, describes how the learning facilitator (teacher) functions as an interactor in the developmental learning process in a child-centered curriculum for young children. The introduction contains a description of the role of the learning facilitator in the developmental process and lists the types of encoding techniques and questioning and statement strategies available to the teacher. The use of verbal reinforcement, extention and elaboration as feedback techniques is discussed. The content of verbal interaction is classified according to cognitive, perceptual motor, social and language development, and the mode of interaction defined. Instruction in this module includes use of video tape recordings of teacher-child interactions. An observation rating scale (with coding formulas) and classroom discussion scripts used with these video tapes are presented. Also outlined are the schedule of classes and practicums and the competencies to be acquired by the student through study of this module. (ED)
