about this item

This guide describes observation in the early childhood classroom and its relevance to curriculum in the UK. It addresses key influences in early childhood education, such as the dominant constructions of childhood, philosophical and psychological views, and key aspects of learning; the nature of observation and its role in relation to legislation and everyday practice; common observation techniques, with examples; issues of analysis and documentation; ethics; practical examples for observing children; observation as a research tool; the role of observation in the curriculum; and the role of practitioners, the issue of professionalism, and the importance of observation skills. This edition has been updated to reflect recent policy and legislation in the UK. It also has a new chapter on the context of early childhood in England and elsewhere and the key elements of child observation around the world, as well as new international case studies.
