Advanced Child Care Education: A Collaboration of Norwalk Secondary Schools and Norwalk Community College.
Gibbs, Elizabeth; And Others
In an effort to align high school and community college child development courses, child care education curriculums of Norwalk Community College and Brien McMahon High School in Norwalk, Connecticut were analyzed. Goals, behavioral objectives, learning activities, acquired skills, methods and materials of instruction, and weekly lesson plans were compared. The alignment allowed high school graduates to enter Norwalk Community College with advanced standing by means of awards of up to 4 1/2 college credits for high school child development courses. In this document, a brief preface is followed by sections that provide: (1) curriculum alignment tables of course content by week and unit; (2) the Norwalk Community College Curriculum, including exams; (3) Norwalk Community College support material; (4) the high school curriculums for Child Development I, Child Development II, and Advanced Child Development, with exams for I and II; and (5) high school support material, a project evaluation, a credits verification letter, and a brochure promoting the high school courses.
