This module adapts the content of an on-campus early childhood education program to a competency-based set of self-paced learning activities for use in largely self-directed, supervised instruction of student child caretakers employed at such settings as a day care center or Head Start agency. Addressed in the individual sections of the module are the following topics: participating in an early childhood classroom, writing a log of daily practicum experiences, evaluating teaching skills and enriching identified areas of need, presenting learning experiences representing ethnic groups, developing plans and procedures for field trips, reading about and reporting on the field of early childhood education, utilizing printscript in the classroom, and preparing for entry into the world of work by developing and using effective job-search strategies. Each section consists of an objective and a list of suggested activities. Appended to the module are assorted sample forms, a sample resume, cover letter, follow-up letter, and a bibliography of works for use in and about early childhood education programs. (MN)
