Riley, Mary Tom
SHAPES--an acronym for the South Plains Child Care Management Services (SpCCMS) Helping, Assisting and Preparing Educators and Staff--is also the name of a preschool readiness curriculum that is being developed for use by administrators and teachers. The first phase of the curriculum development consists of the publication of five books to be used in training teaching staff. The present text is the fifth book in the series. It describes the ways in which preschool teachers can use the other four books in the series. It also discusses qualifications for trainers and the amount of time that should be devoted to training. A list of tips and techniques for training workshops and presentations, a breakdown of the times required for various training activities, and a suggested training agenda for a workshop, are provided. Forms for evaluating the SHAPES training workshop and the SHAPES curriculum are appended. (BC)
