Annotated Bibliography of CDA Curriculum Materials (Volume I, No. 1).
Administration for Children, Youth, and Families (DHEW), Washington, DC.
Citations of Child Development Associate (CDA) curricula and supplemental resource materials are included in this annotated bibliography published by the CDA Clearinghouse. The materials are grouped according to the six CDA competency areas, the bilingual/bicultural training competencies, the personal capacities (social skills), and general supplemental resource materials. Curriculum materials include educational packages, instructional booklets, learning packages and modules, etc. The CDA competencies are: (1) establishing a safe and healthy environment conducive to teaching preschool children; (2) advancing physical and intellectual competence in preschoolers; (3) building positive self-concept and individual strength; (4) promoting positive functioning of children and adults in a group; (5) establishing productive parent/teacher relations; and (6) cooperating with other staff members in policy and curriculum planning. The CDA program also stresses supporting bilingual education and promoting personal capacities (such as social skills). Supplemental resources include content oriented early childhood educational materials not specifically developed for CDA training. Each curriculum or supplemental resource citation contains publication data, a cross reference index, and a summary of key features of the document. (Author/SE)
