A Guide for Trainers of DARCEE Teachers (Preschool Series).
Claxton, Sue; And Others
This resource book is addressed to people responsible for preparing Demonstration and Research Center for Early Education (DARCEE) teachers of preschool children. The book offers suggestions that will enable DARCEE teacher trainers to avoid some of the pitfalls into which other trainers have stumbled, and it offers a number of suggestions that will make their work more productive. For an understanding of the training sessions, it is advisable to read "The DARCEE Teacher's Guide" in conjunction with this book. The primary focus of the book is to provide objectives and procedures that a trainer might use in teaching DARCEE teachers. The book deals with three basic kinds of training: preservice; observation-feedback visits; and inservice. The first chapter defines DARCEE, traces its history, and discusses the DARCEE trainer and training program. The next chapter describes how to establish an effective preservice training session and schedule a preservice training workshop. The next two chapters discuss observation feedback visits and inservice training. Three appendixes constitute the majority of the book. Appendix A outlines in detail 12 lessons for preservice training. An overview, objectives, strategies, and list of materials used are discussed in each lesson. Lessons cover such topics as teacher, positive reinforcement, skill development, and attitude development. Appendix B correlates the special materials needed for the lessons in Appendix A. Appendix C contains recommended observation and feedback report form. (SK)
