Infant/Toddler Caregiving: An Annotated Guide to Media Training Materials.
Honig, Alice S.; Wittmer, Donna Sasse
This guide represents the first attempt to survey and record all the currently available videos, films, filmstrips, slide cassette programs, and audio programs that have been developed to train caregivers of children under age three. The reviews were completed in 1986. Annotated selections are entered alphabetically. Above each title a symbol identifies the type of media for the entry. Following the title, key identifiers (such as anger, feeding, and language development) help identify the entry in terms of specific topics for caregivers. A detailed description of each entry follows, providing a clear idea of the content and method of conveying the main ideas. This is followed by the reviewers' rating of the entry's audiovisual quality and content according to four categories of quality (excellent, good, fair, or poor). In addition, appropriate audiences are specified (for example, caregivers, parents) and other pertinent information is provided, including the address or telephone number to use to obtain the media item; the production date; the length, format, and price; and whether or not a guide or booklet is provided. Also included are an index of annotated titles with audiovisual information; the complete list of mediated materials for caregivers of infants and toddlers that were reviewed for this project; a list of key identifiers for films, videos, filmstrips, and slide cassette programs; and an alphabetical index of key identifiers.
