Working in the World of Children.
Magyar, Susan L.; Walsky, Anne M.
This curriculum guide is designed to create a pre-vocational awareness in the area of child care for students in ninth grade. The program covers both preparation for parenthood and occupational possibilities in this field. The twenty-nine, easy-to-read lessons have been divided into the following six units: (1) child care careers; (2) understanding your personal development; (3) working with children; (4) setting up a child-care facility; (5) family and society; and (6) entering the world of work. Each lesson includes objectives, vocabulary lists, informational content, illustrations, related forms, and learning activities. Some of the units include pre- and posttests. Several evaluation forms and a questionnaire are appended. It is suggested that the curriculum be taught in conjunction with the operation of a child-care facility within the school in order to give the students firsthand experience. (BM)
