9780826492739: Observing Children and Young People

Observation is an essential skill for all who work as carers and educators of children. It is the key way to assess a child's stage of development, to assess their progress, to alert you to their needs, to plan for their teaching and to enjoy each child's unique qualities. This book has been written to guide you through the process and to become a skilled practitioner.

Observing Children and Young People:
- is based on real observations
- describes aims and objectives
- illustrates methods of recording observations
- provides guidance on observing children with SEN
- suggests activities for promoting progress
- offers a detailed breakdown of developmental milestones.

Now in its 4th edition, this is a well-established, user-friendly and invaluable guide to observation techniques for everyone working with children and young people, with new material on observation of an extended age range, from 0--16 years.

It is essential reading for all CACHE, Edexcel, Open University and City & Guilds validated courses for a vast range of childcare practitioners who work in a variety of settings, including schools, nurseries, hospitals and homes. Contents will also appeal to teaching assistants, trainee and practising teachers, and those studying for foundation and undergraduate degrees in Childhood Studies.

Review:

'I would give this book 10 out of 10 for being clearly written, easy to follow and very useful for all working in childcare.'
~ Sarah Palmer, Member of National Childminding Association (Sarah Palmer)

'This is a book that should be invaluable for students conducting observations... full of practical and sensible ideas gleaned from the authors' combined knowledge and experience.'
~ Journal for Education and Teaching

"This is an absolutely fabulous book, which will be invaluable to all those who work as carers and educators of young children. Written in a highly accessible and easy to dip in and out of style, most will find it an easy and informative read. Packed with sensible and practical ideas gleaned from the qualified and experienced authors, the reader will be a much more skilled practitioner having developed their analytical powers of observation to the full. This user-friendly guide to observation is an essential read for all CACHE, Edexel, Open University and City & Guilds validated courses and all childcare practitioners, such as reception class teachers, foundation stage practitioners and teaaching assistants" (Martine Horvath, Early Years Educator)
