Emotional Connections: How Relationships Guide Early Learning. Instructor's Manual [with CD-ROM]
Butterfield, Perry McArthur; Martin, Carole A.; Prairie, Arleen Pratt
The number of very young children entering center-based child care programs is growing. Now, more than ever, it is important for caregivers to understand the impact they have on the healthy development of the children in their care. "Emotional Connections" translates new research on cognitive, social, and emotional development in the early years into the language of daily caregiving and teaching. The authors give trainers the information and tools they need to teach infant-toddler caregivers how to build responsive relationships with very young children and their families. They show how positive relationships are the context for helping babies and toddlers learn, communicate, and regulate behavior. "Emotional Connections" materials are designed to supplement comprehensive training curricula, such as the Program for Infant/Toddler Caregivers (PITC). This Instructor's Guide for educators and trainers offers teaching strategies and classroom activities designed specifically for adult learners and organized around the key concepts in each chapter of the student guide. The accompanying CD-ROM contains printable handouts, worksheets, and overheads. A list of references; glossary; and an index are included. [For Student Guide, see ED500254.]
