  1. Observing Children

  2. Why do we observe young children? • To get to know the children • To identify needs/special needs • To identify individual and classroom problems • To plan developmentally appropriate curriculum • To document progress/levels of development • To evaluate programs • To learn more about child development

  3. Formal vs Informal • More controlled conditions • Results used to form developmental norms • Requires specialized training • Examples: • standardized tests • Surveys • questionnaires • Less controlled conditions • Easier to use • More appropriate for program planning • Examples: • interviewing parents • talking with children • observing students • collecting student work samples

  4. Objective Data • Must describe only observable data • Must be nonevaluative • Recording only the facts without personal opinion or bias

  5. Subjective • Relates to a person's inner feelings, opinions, and thoughts. • Recording personal impressions and opinions

  6. Naturalistic Vs Participant • Observing and recording behaviors as they occur naturally • Sit in a low chair • Position to the side • Wear simple clothing • Avoid talking with children • Avoid prolonged eye contact • Avoid interfering except when a child may be in imminent danger • An observer who interacts with children while observing

  7. Guidelines Every Observer Should Use • Ethics • Confidentiality • Example – no real names, no photographs (or must have parents permission!)
