This updated edition of Focused Observations will help early childhood educators connect observation and documentation to appropriate assessment and curriculum related to early learning guidelines.

Intentional teaching begins with focused observations and systematic documentation of children’s learning and development. This book explains why observation is one of the best methods to get to know each child well, track progress, and plan individualized curriculum. It also provides tools and techniques to help you strengthen your observations, create portfolios with rich documentation, and support each child. You will also learn how to share your findings with families and grow as an observer through review and reflection activities.

Why should I use observation in my classroom?
What does effective observation and documentation look like?
How do I fit observation in so that it doesn’t take away from teaching and interacting with children?
