On the Line in Child Care: An Entry Level Training Curriculum for Residential Child Care Workers.
Ouderkirk, Wayne, Ed.
A curriculum used over a 3-year period in statewide training programs for residential child care workers is organized and described according to 11 training modules. The modules focus on increasing the self-awareness of the human service professional and on presenting basic facts about human development, procedures for assessment and planning, and aspects of child care practice. Each module provides introductory material stating purpose or rationale, statements of behavioral objectives or behavioral changes indicating what the worker should be able to do after completing the module, resource papers for trainers preparing instruction, and training session outlines providing specific suggestions on how to deliver a training lesson on each topic. The training sessions are the core of the curriculum; these include a list of logistical requirements concerning time, space, equipment, handouts, and other needed materials, as well as a description of a proposed training session. Annotated bibliographies at the end of the modules are intended as an initial guide to the literature related to module content. In addition to a case example for use in the assessment and evaluation of training, a self-assessment form for trainees is included with the handouts for each module. (RH)
