Social and Psychological Development of Children 1 to 2: Foster Parent Curriculum.
This instructor's guide for a foster parent curriculum consists of specific curriculum material for the study of the social and psychological development of toddlers, ages 1 and 2. The guide is divided into 5 parts: (1) a developmental guide of normal toddler behaviors and appropriate adult responses; (2) an outline of desired foster parent competencies, instructor materials and suggested teaching strategies; (3) the text, which introduces the topics of normal toddler behavior, appropriate adult responses, guidance techniques appropriate for toddlers, undesirable behavior, and problems related to separation from natural parents; (4) three question sets to stimulate discussion and instructor's answer guide; and (5) a list of available resource materials. It is suggested that these curriculum materials be used in an informal way which de-emphasizes reading and writing tasks. (Author/RH)
