Kentucky Consumer & Homemaking Education. Child Development. Curriculum Guide, Comprehensive Courses.
Bishop, Helen; And Others
Intended for use by teachers on the junior high and high school levels, this curriculum guide, which is one in a series of guides for consumer and homemaking education in Kentucky, outlines three courses in the area of child development. The seventh grade level unit discusses young children, their development, and babysitting for them, including safety practices; the comprehensive I level unit covers the growth and development of young children, the influence of others on them, the importance of play, their daily care and discipline, and community agencies which care for children of working parents; and the comprehensive II level course treats the subjects of reproduction; pregnancy; childbirth; community agencies that provide help during pregnancy, childbirth, and adoption; postnatal care; infant development; and job opportunities in the child development area. For each unit, major concepts are identified as well as behavioral objectives which are stated in terms of student competencies, and the specific teaching strategies are accompanied by references to outside resources (primarily books and pamphlets) and supporting generalizations. Unit 1, which is to be used in the seventh grade, requires two to three weeks for completion while the comprehensive level units need four to six weeks each. A separate publication (CE 017 499) outlines a semester course on the same subject, and the appendix to the entire series (CE 017 496) includes activities for each instructional unit. (ELG)
