Early Childhood Workshops That Work! The Essential Guide to Successful Training and Workshops.
Alexander, Nancy P.
Noting that good training results from the instructor's skill, knowledge, and ability to plan a session based on what participants need and want, this book is a comprehensive guide that illustrates how to design, organize, conduct, and evaluate early childhood workshops and training seminars. The book includes sections on troubleshooting problem situations and designing learning materials. The chapters are as follows: (1) "Designing Training"; (2) "Activities for Individuals, Partners, Small Groups, and Whole Groups"; (3) "Demonstrations, Learning Games, and Other Learning Experiences"; (4) "Making and Using Effective Workshop Materials"; (5) "Components of Effective Training"; and (6) "Troubleshooting." The book's appendix includes training and activity materials. Contains 23 references. (HTH)
