Early Childhood Training Workbook [and Videos].
Magna Systems, Inc., Barrington, IL.
This early childhood training workbook and three accompanying video series provide instruction for early childhood caregivers and teachers in the areas of guidance and discipline, math, and diversity. The video series "Guidance and Discipline" demonstrates the ways in which teachers help children become self disciplined. The three videos in this series cover: (1) the learning environment; (2) curriculum; (3) teacher/child interaction. The video series "Path to Math" provides activities for exploring mathematical concepts that will be the foundation for later math learning. The five videos in this series cover: (1) one-to-one correspondence--comparing; (2) sets and classification--seriation or ordering; (3) shapes--parts and wholes; (4) space--measurement; and (5) numbers and counting--numerals. The video series "Diversity" provides a catalyst and framework for discussion of what quality care for preschool children means in a culturally sensitive context that values diversity. The four videos in this series cover: (1) diversity and communication; (2) diversity and conflict management; (3) diversity, independence, and individuality; and (4) diversity: contrasting perspectives. The training workbook sections for the Guidance and Discipline and Path to Math series contain an introduction, overview, questions to consider, vocabulary, objectives, and self-study test corresponding to each of the videos in the series. The workbook section for the Diversity series follows a similar format except that in place of the self test are suggested issues and questions for exploring through writing. (HTH)
