Early Childhood Education 191. Practicum. CDA Training Material.
This booklet is designed to assist students participating in supervised training experiences at the primary or preschool levels in such settings as a day care center or Head Start agency. The purpose of this document is to adapt the content of the Early Childhood Education courses at Bellevue Community College to a competency based program such as the Child Development Associate (CDA). Included in the first part of the booklet are a trainee information form, a trainee self-appraisal form, a training plan sheet, and observation forms to be filled out by parents and supervisors. The remainder of the guide consists of 10 guide sheets, each of which discusses one of the practicum's 10 objectives and includes an objective statement, a CDA competence equivalent, a list of activities for the trainee, and descriptions of materials to develop for inclusion in a trainee portfolio. Appended to the booklet is a bibliography of materials about and for use in early childhood education programs. (MN)
