ECE 112 Observing, Recording, and Analyzing Early Childhood Settings

Fieldwork and classroom presentations/discussions provide students the opportunity to learn, know, and apply a variety of recording techniques, such as narratives (e.g., anecdotal, running record, and journal), time sampling, event sampling, and checklists. Discussions focus on the classroom as a learning community, including the teacher as a learner and leader through reflective practice. Analysis of observations takes into account observer assumptions and theories of child and adult development. Assessment is determined by the quality of in-progress records, discussions, and a final assignment. Co-requisite: ENG 101. Three lecture hours per week.
