9780130271532: Observing Development of the Young Child

Appropriate for Observation in Early Childhood courses.

One of the few books that successfully combines observation techniques with child development, this user-friendly text takes an applied approach that allows students to observe, record, and interpret child development by looking at particular behavior. Using the observation data to determine the level of a child's development, plans and activities are illustrated to show students how to help children strengthen specific areas of development.

Review:

Jan Jewett, Washington State University-Vancover

"This text benefits from focused coverage on explaining specific, key areas of development knowledgeably and engagingly.  Further, it provides many valuable, developmentally appropriate and well researched strategies for supporting healthy progress in practical, manageable terms.

 

I would consider adopting this text as a second reference for my advanced seminar--because it so clearly allows the reader to work through the basic foundations and principles of E.C.E. through the lens of observational assessment and to apply this knowledge in specific ways that benefit the growth of each individual child.  I found it engaging, highly readable, and very practical and useful."

 

Louise Vlasic, Everett Community College

"The writing style is user friendly for the community college population for whom I teach.  Students generally like this text and retain it for future reference."

 

Carol Dixon Sammis, Tompkins Cortland Community College

"I see the key strength of this project to be the use of the Child Skills Checklist as the collection tool of data."

From the Back Cover:

Distinct from other books on observation techniques, Beaty’s practical text, Observing Development of the Young Child, Sixth Edition, presents her unique system of observing and recording child development using an invaluable planning tool, The Child Skills Checklist.  The integration of strategies and children's books to encourage development is a major focus of this best-selling text.

Features of this text:

  • Clearly and practically explains what students should look for developmentally in children in their care so that they have a basis for understanding what they are seeing.
  • Highlights use of a practical tool, The Child Skills Checklist, to assess children's development in 11 areas: self-esteem, emotional development, social play, prosocial behavior, large and small motor development, cognitive development, spoken language, emerging literacy skills, art skills, and imagination.
  • Incorporates practical activities to implement with young children and their families to encourage development.  Many up-to-date multicultural children's books are listed to support developmental progress.
