Overview

Week by Week: Plans for Documenting Children's Development, 4e is a reference that not only presents the technical aspects of many various methods of documentation, it also reviews domains of development and the efficiency of each method to capture important information. Early childhood professionals should be keeping written records for every child in their group, documenting events, achievements, and concerns. There are many methods or types of documentation to use. The dilemma of both child development learners and professionals is how to manage detailed, meaningful documentation while attending to all the functions that they need to perform to keep children safe and actively involved in learning. This book is an all-purpose guide for learners and practitioners to gather meaningful developmental information. The new online companion contains forms and additional resources that will assist in using the child assessments to guide curriculum planning. Also added to this new edition are 'It Happened To Me' vignettes that illustrate key points and are both entertaining as well as illustrative of the experiences of real professionals. It also includes an expanded discussion of the implications of No Child Left Behind and authentic assessment by portfolio documentation. The book can be useful for courses in observation methods, child development, curriculum planning and practicum. This reference is a must-have that provides a year's plan for gathering developmental data on every child; something every classroom teacher needs.
