HSERV 202A - Observation and Assessment

4 credits

Observing children is at the core of Early Childhood Education. Through documentation of teacher’s observations and the works of the child using the Prospect Center Descriptive Review of the Child and the Description of Children’s Work, the student comes to understand how a particular child makes meaning. Through shared recollections of their own learning experiences students gain a larger perspective of teaching and learning. Emphasis is placed on collaboration and sharing observations in developing knowledge about teaching.Class Hours: 4Corequisite: HSERV 216 Early Childhood Field I.Prerequisite or Corequisite: HSERV 135B Foundations of Early Childhood.
