The second year encompasses the following subjects: preparation for the world of work; exploring careers in child care; basic child development of infants and school-age children; exceptional children; child abuse and neglect; theories of early children education; selection and arrangement of equipment; and first aid and personal safety. For each topic the concept, performance objectives, generalizations, competencies, suggested learning activities, criterion-referenced tests, and suggested references are listed. An in-depth bibliography is included at the end, preceded by three appendixes containing information on Home Economics Related Occupations (HERO), a vocational youth organization; community advisory committees; and cooperative occupational home economics.
