One of the few books that successfully combines observation techniques with child development, this user-friendly book 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 readers how to help children strengthen specific areas of development. Chapter coverage discusses developmental assessment instruments—along with alternate approaches to child assessment using shadow studies, play-based assessment and child interviews, as well as digital camera photos. It also includes information on the emergence of emotions in young children, new brain research showing the importance of physical development, sharing observational data with parents, and a child skills checklist that can be used by teachers to determine children's levels of development. For early childhood teachers.

Appropriate for Observation in Early Childhood or Assessment in Early Childhood courses, or as a supplement to Child Development or Practicum courses in which observation is a component. Distinct from other books on observation techniques, Beaty's practical text, Observing Development of the Young Child, 6e, presents her unique system of observing and recording child development using an invaluable planning tool, The Child Skills Checklist. This practical, easy-to-use system is based on a progression of children's skill development in six major areas: emotional, social, physical, cognitive, language, and creative. Unique aspects of Observing Development of the Young Child include discussions of how to observe young children, interpret the data recorded, and plan for individuals based on the observations.From the Publisher:
An excellent introduction to development in two-to six-year-olds...one whose unique Child Skills Checklist for observing and recording behaviors in the classroom really helps future early childhood teachers learn about children, in addition to learning how to observe and assess their behavior. This text begins with a discussion of the latest NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) guidelines for appropriate assessment of young children, and of observation as the preferred method for such assessment. This text is especially helpful in the treatment of written language and a natural part of emerging literacy rather than a learned activity, and also has excellent coverage of the imagination creativity link. Available as a companion text, is the author's Skills for Preschool Teachers, 4/Ed.
