Principles and Theories of Child Development. Instructor's Guide.
Texas Tech Univ., Lubbock. Home Economics Curriculum Center.
This teacher's guide is designed for use by postsecondary child development instructors in programs that prepare students to be child caregivers or directors. Materials are developed for use in courses that have both a lecture and a laboratory. The instructor's guide is organized in six units covering the following topics: perspectives on child development; theories of child development; prenatal development and the neonate; development in infancy and toddlerhood; development in early childhood; and middle childhood and adolescent development. At the beginning of each unit, performance objectives and references are listed. Suggested classroom learning experiences provide instructors with teaching strategies to help students achieve the objectives. The unit test includes multiple-choice and essay questions. Transparency and handout masters are included for reproduction for classroom use. The instructor's guide also contains guidelines for student laboratory experiences as well as guidelines for evaluating students, for working with students with special needs, and for determining readability using the Fog index. A glossary, answer keys, and a bibliography of all references noted in the units, with publishers' addresses, complete the guide. (KC)
