This curriculum guide presents a course of study in child development for the secondary level. The course is a combination of regularly scheduled class sessions and a playschool laboratory in which students can explore the physical, intellectual, social, and emotional development of the preschool child. In addition, the course is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in the field of child care. Unit I of the four-unit course presents the organization and observation of the playschool laboratory in a suggested five-week time span. Unit II on socialization and parenting is designed as a twelve-week unit. Unit III, also planned to last twelve weeks, covers the management elements of the parenting role. Unit IV, a seven-week study, deals with special topics in child development, including exceptional children. Each unit contains a list of broad goals, instructional objectives, activities, resources, and suggested evaluation techniques. A grouping and activity pattern chart for the lab and classroom activities is included along with a compiled list of resources. (BM)
