Texas A and I Univ., Kingsville.
This volume, the third in a series of seven, contains the eight learning modules which focus on the second Child Development Associate (CDA) competency, advancing physical and intellectual competence in young children, in the performance-based curriculum of the Texas A & I Bilingual Bicultural Child Development Associate Training Program. The curriculum was designed for training preschool teachers working with Spanish dominant migrant children, from age 3 to school entrance age, in South Texas. The competency covered in this volume consists of four functional areas and their subdivisions: physical (motor development; handicapped children), cognitive (cultural values and cognitive styles; cognitive styles; teaching strategies), language (language skills in the first language; language as a second language), and creative. There is a learning module for each of the subdivisions of the functional areas. A module includes (1) an explanation of how it is to be completed; (2) a description of the performance objectives; (3) a pre-assessment instrument; (4) three alternative cycles of learning activites, each cycle divided into four skill areas (diagnostic, prescriptive, implementation, assessment); (5) a narrative of information about the functional area; (6) the script for filmstrip to be used with the module; and (7) a post-assessment instrument.
