Module Cover

Through a New Lens

A Learning Module for Early Childhood Education Programs

by Linda Baker & Alison Cunningham (2005). In 22 pages, the professor gets all the material required to plan a two-hour lecture -- or a full-day workshop. The module document outlines learning objectives, recommended learning resources (all available on-line), suggested videos/DVDs, supplementary learning activities for students, case studies for discussion, a list of optional class handouts, some background statistics and research, and a test bank of multiple choice and short answer questions. Professors can explain why students need to learn about woman abuse, how children might be affected, and what signs of distress might be seen in the child care setting. They will be able to suggest strategies for the child care setting to support child adjustment and to respond to challenging behaviours. Special contingencies when families are in shelters can also be addressed. This resource was developed with funding from the Ontario Women's Directorate.
