Graves, Patricia; Migliaro, Ann
The purpose of this Child Development Associate (CDA) training module is to help the CDA intern become aware of the values of a creative media program for young children, develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement an art program, and select media for their process values rather than for their products. Objectives are presented along with suggested activities for achieving each objective, and an assessment checklist. Also provided is a study guide emphasizing the importance of providing young children with creative media, the developmental stages through which children pass in using such media, the location and arrangement of the creative media center, the materials offered in the center and the process of using media, the children's previous experience with creative media, and ideas and guidelines for planning creative media experiences. Resources for further study and supplemental materials are also included. (Author/MP)
