Observation and Reflection on Children’s Development
As you’ve learned, observation is an important skill for understanding children’s development and learning, as well as an important professional skill. The information gathered during observation can be used to aid children’s development as well as a means of communication with families and other colleagues.
This week, you use your observation skills and knowledge of child development to observe and analyze an unscripted video that demonstrates the types of skills and behaviors that are early childhood markers on children aged 3 to 5.
To get ready, do the following:
In the Learning Resources, watch the Laureate Education media segment How to Observe Children. Learn about the developmental milestones for children between the ages of three and five. Then, after watching the Laureate Education media segment Child Development: Preschool Children, fill in the blanks:
Provide the following information based on your observations of children aged 3 to 5:
For each of the developmental domains, here are some anecdotal descriptions:
Social-emotional disorders (SED) are a type of mental illness that affects people
a mental state
Three anecdotal accounts of the interrelationships between developmental domains
An objective summary of what you observed in the areas of social-emotional, cognitive, language, and physical development should be provided in your anecdotal descriptions. Make sure to use specific language that captures the nuances of development in each description. Each developmental area and each description of an interrelationship should be a half page to one page in length and focus on one or two children.
Write a 2- to 3-page reflection paper in response to the following questions about your observation experiences after you’ve finished your anecdotal descriptions for both age groups (birth to 2 and ages 3 to 5).
How does the information you gathered from your observations and the method you used to observe inform your ability to conduct field observations?
What questions about the children in the media segment and the overall experience of observing arose during the observation process? Did you face any difficulties in remaining objective? If so, what were the difficulties?
What questions come to mind as you consider the observation process and experience?
What else do you want to know about the kids you saw (in terms of personal and environmental factors)? What methods could you employ to gather this data?
How did the information you gathered during your observation help you to better understand children’s development and learning, as well as the interplay between developmental domains?
What additional knowledge about children’s development do you require? What method did you use to get this information?
What you saw exemplified what you’re learning in the course, in your opinion?
How does the information you gathered during your observation help you in your current and/or future roles in the field?
To support your arguments, cite appropriate references in APA format.
