Seeing Young Children: A Guide to Observing and Recording Behavior
(ISBN-10: 1418073814 | ISBN-13: 9781418073817)
Seeing Young Children is an extensive guide to observing and recording the behavior of children from birth, through age eight. This book uniquely blends the theoretical and practical aspects of observing and recording behavior, and begins with a discussion of the basic meaning of observation, and why it is so important to human functioning. General guidelines for observing children are an extremely important component of the framework, as are the basic elements of observing and recording behavior. In what is perhaps the most important material of all, the author discusses how to interpret observations, the implementation of findings, and ongoing evaluation. Seven chapters are dedicated to detailed discussions of nine recording techniques or instruments, and the advantages and disadvantages of each. The last five chapters are dedicated to the actual observation exercises through which readers can test their skills. Specific by age group, each chapter provides students with observation objectives, instructions as to procedure, and background information on many functional areas.
