Youth in Educational Service: Education for Parenthood.
Bonafield, Joyce, Ed.
This is one of a series of Education for Parenthood manuals developed by the Salvation Army for use in demonstration programs designed to prepare teenagers for parenthood or for child care careers. This guide offers a step-by-step approach to setting up and conducting a parenthood program for teenage leaders in day camps and community centers. Included are detailed plans for 16 training sessions and guidelines for curriculum design, setting-up practices, arrangement of field work experience, and program evaluation procedures. Emphasis of the program is on experimental and practical learning through the use of films and discussion, workshops, field trips, role-playing and awareness sessions, and supervised field work. A team teaching approach (2-3 leaders for a group of 12-15 trainees) is recommended. (BF)
