Caring for Children in School-Age Programs. A Trainer's Guide.
Koralek, Derry G.; Foulks, Debra D.
This guide assists trainers of school age program staff who are using the self-instructional book "Caring for Children in School-Age Programs," during which time trainers must play an active role. Chapter 1 describes the content, format, and training approach of "Caring for Children in School-Age Programs"; discusses how to offer training based on adult learning principles; describes professional development and program improvement in the area of school age care; and suggests ways to make training count. Chapter 2 gives an overview of the trainer's role in introducing the self-instructional training program, completing the orientation, and working through a module. This chapter also discusses providing feedback, describes what staff and trainers do to complete each module, and suggests strategies for extending learning. Chapter 3 (addressed to trainers who will deliver training through workshops, seminars, or college courses) describes training techniques, logistics, ways to encourage active participation, and methods for evaluating training. A sample training outline is also provided. Chapter 4 explains the assessment process and includes knowledge and competency assessments for each training module. Seven appendices contain a planning form for group training sessions, answer sheets for knowledge assessment, observation forms for the competency assessments, tracking forms, a training record, a certification of completion, and a list of publishers and distributors of resources.
