Preschool Recreation Enrichment Program (PREP). Trainers Handbook. Volume III. An Aid for Providers of Recreation and Education Services.
Littman, Karen G.
The report presents a competency based instruction approach for training providers of preschool recreation programs for both handicapped and nonhandicapped children. Seven training modules are presented, each module listing particular learning objectives in behavioral terms, along with suggested learning activities (such as readings and participation activities designed to help the trainee acquire the desired competency level). Each module also contains a trainer's guide, suggested test items, and supplementary reading lists. The seven modules cover such things as the Preschool Recreation Enrichment Program (PREP), which developed the training manual; an introduction to patterns and milestones of normal growth and development with emphasis on motor, cognitive, language, and social skills; development of skill in writing goals and objectives for preschool recreation programs; an overview of the PREP planning process; characteristics of integrated short and long term program plans and ways of constructing plans for individual children; approaches to putting short term plans into action using life experiences and principles of managing children's behavior; and program evaluation. A final section examines training concerns, techniques, and approaches. (DLS)
