Guide to Teaching Early Child Development: A Comprehensive Curriculum.
Cooper, Grace C.
This teacher's guide is part of the parenting curriculum package developed by the Consortium on Early Childbearing and Childrearing (CECC) and is meant to be used in conjunction with parenting curriculum materials (published in 1974) designed for use with school-age parents. Supplemental information presented in the guide is subdivided into three parts. The child development section provides information on the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of infants during their first, second and third years, and offers a discussion of alternative methods of day care. Bibliographies on child development, language acquisition, and poetry for children are included. The section on teacher resource materials includes suggested teaching methods, sample lesson plans, tests and worksheets, suggested role-playing situations, and sources for audio-visual aids and free materials. The appendices, approximately one-third of the guide, provide further information for the teacher on theories of child development and language acquisition, adolescence and adolescent pregnancy, and cultural differences within the U.S. (non-English language, food customs, and bibliography). An annotated bibliography on adolescent sexuality and family planning is also included. (ED)
