The purpose of this Child Development Associate (CDA) training module is to help CDA interns learn more about the skills of listening, observing and responding, and learn to use these skills effectively with preschool children.

Both instructional and behavioral objectives are given. The teacher's materials consist of pre-test directions and an answer key as well as an activity list and directions. The student's materials include pre- and post-tests, an activity record and 14 lessons. (Author/RH)
