The purpose of this Child Development Associate (CDA) training module, one of a series of 18, is to provide the CDA intern with an understanding of both the processes involved in the development of language skills and the role of the teacher in enhancing language development. The module stipulates competency-based objectives and provides essential information, suggestions, examples and learning activities on topics related to the objectives. These topics are the development of language and communication skills; the teacher's role in the development of these skills; dramatics for young children; the function of language arts in the preschool; children's literature; and activity development. Also included is a partially annotated list of books, pamphlets, films, and tapes concerning language development and educational experiences in language arts. (SS)
