The next section provides a review of child development for the five areas of the curriculum. The section on teaching strategies includes subsections on the developmental approach, structuring the environment, enhancing self concept, prescriptive teaching and task analysis, types of aid, behavior mangement procedures, and individualization. A brief chapter on assessment includes a sample criterion and prerequisite list and recording sheet. Also included is a glossary and a bibliography. (DB)
