Included in each chapter are several worksheets designed to direct the teacher's attention toward the way materials and equipment are used by the children, how the classroom functions, what children learn in a particular setting, and the role of the teacher in helping the children. Also included are discussions of what is to be learned, and lists of objectives, behavioral indications, pretests and posttests, and additional theoretical and practical resource materials. (SG)
