Philadelphia Community Coll., PA.; Philadelphia School District, PA.; Research for Better Schools, Inc., Philadelphia, PA.
In this Child Development Associate (CDA) training module, the trainee is provided with basic concepts of child development. The identity, socialization and sense of self worth of the child are emphasized. Techniques for observing the behavior of 3- to 5-year-old children are indicated. As a result, the trainee can learn how to make and maintain, over a period of time, profiles of individual children's personal and social development. A pretest, an activity list for the resource person, directions for trainee, resource person and field supervisor, and a glossary are included. Most of the module consists of 20 learning activities for the trainee. Through discussions of identity and socialization processes trainees are taught to see developmental implications in children's behavior and talk in the preschool setting. Discussion guides for the course instructor are given. (Author/RH)
