A Trainer's Guide to the Creative Curriculum for Infants and Toddlers.
Dodge, Diane Trister; Yandian, Sharon E.; Bloomer, Donna
Drawing from the core idea that infant and toddler care should be based on building relationships, this trainer's guide is intended for program directors, staff, and instructors who are using "The Creative Curriculum for Infants & Toddlers." Part one of the guide provides background information about "The Creative Curriculum" and describes the standards that define quality programs. This section also offers suggestions for: professional development of caregivers and teachers; creating a positive learning environment; learning about and using the "Curriculum"; and individualizing staff development. Part two of the guide offers a comprehensive series of workshops designed to introduce and involve caregivers and teachers in learning about and applying the "Curriculum" in their own settings. The workshops can be incorporated into a series of college courses, or offered on-site as part of ongoing staff development that enhances the career goals of each caregiver and teacher. The workshop series addresses all of the chapters in "The Creative Curriculum." Camera-ready handouts and references to the applicable sections of the "Journal" and the "Curriculum" are provided. The guide's resources section provides an annotated list of books and videos that complement the workshops, and a list of applicable web sites. (Author)
