Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to use different types of observation and conduct observations of physical, social, cognitive, and/or language development by using appropriate observation strategies.
For this assignment, you will conduct 3 observations.
- Conduct three observations of development. Use a different category of development for each observation (language, cognitive, physical, social-emotional).
- Use a different type of observation for each, selected from anecdotal records, running records, time sampling, and event sampling. Describe the purposes of the different types of observations.
- Use an adaptation of the sample observation form in Figure 5-7 for each of the three observations.
- Fill out the observation form from page 133 of the textbook for each observation conducted. Scan copies of observation records and include them in the same word document.
