Great updated version of a very useful textbook.
Ioanna Palaiologou's work has always proved popular with our students but this incarnation of her work on 'observation' has been particularly well received and is usually 'out' in the library. The first chapter is useful for extending beyond EYFS and the chapters are convincing in terms the necessity of observation in terms of decision making and planning and also offers the students 'freedom' to be creative in how they might collect and use data in a setting.
Links well to course content
Observation from a wide range of perspectives, including ethical considerations are considered in this updated text. Essential for all of those working with young children or studying on early childhood education programmes.
This book is an excellent resource for students carrying out observations of children at work or placement. It provides many examples and practical tips for developing practitioners and makes essential reading for a couple of core modules on our course.
This source will be a useful text to support observation practices in the EYFS
Core book for students needing to do observations in early childhood.
Useful updated version of a tried and tested book. Covers observations from a wide range of perspectives including ethical considerations, which is paramount for our Foundation Degree students. Useful for both year 1 and year 2 students for research modules.
The observation techniques that are described in this book will be very useful for students new to such practice. While the playwork students, for whom this book is recommended, are more likely to observe school age children outside of an educational setting, it will nevertheless be of interest to them and support their growing understanding of the different approaches taken to working with children.
Essential for units which feature specific child observation elements. I like this text - it is now updated and of great value to myself, colleagues and students.
A good resource for the level 3 learners completing the EYE, giving them an comprehensive explanation of the theory and methods of observations.
