The Art of Awareness: How Observation Can Transform Your Teaching

Rate this book
Observing children closely provides a new way of thinking about learning and teaching, a way of making children visible as they are, not just as we want them to be. Featuring nine Observation Study Sessions, this book offers ideas, activities, and experiences, as opposed to just a set of checklists and facts to learn. Chapters cover observing seven different aspects of children's lives as well as tips for gathering and preparing documentation. A full-color insert provides examples of documentation.

I teach child development courses and I used this book for a course of Observation and Assessment of Young Children. I thought the authors did a fantastic job on portraying children as capable and competent learners.

This a really wonderful book for anyone working with children. Especially if you are interested in emergent curriculum. I will be referring to this book often when I need inspiration, ideas, or quotes.

This book taught me that time spent sitting and observing is not time wasted. It helped me to slow down and make my time with children count for something,
