The Child Development Associate Program: A Guide to Field Supervision.
Hamby, Trudy M.
One in a series of guides to Child Development Associate (CDA) training, this volume details information on the roles, responsibilities, and skills required of CDA field supervisors. Following the first chapter's introductory description of CDA goals, components, and programs, chapter 2 presents an overview of the broad areas of knowledge important for the success of the CDA field supervisor. CDA program components, early childhood education and child development theories and principles, and a theory of self-concept are discussed in relation to the supervisor's roles and responsibilities. Chapter 3 recounts diverse and complex skills required of the field supervisor, grouping them into two major categories: appraising and teaching. Finally, chapter 4 discusses interpersonal skills in terms of the field supervisor's attitudes, emphasizing the potential impact of attitudes on the field supervisor/intern team relationship. A glossary of CDA terms and procedures, CDA training and appraisal materials, and resources for the CDA program are appended. (MP)
