EDM 565 - Observation and Assessment

(Cr: 4)
This course is divided into two sections.  There are sixteen academic hours of in-class lecture and discussions; and twenty nine hours of observation in various early childhood settings.  The students are required to visit three different sites (with a return visit in the sprig to an earlier site to observe changes over time.)  The Institute provides the student with a written assignment for these observations.  The students prepares a final report (Summary Observation Form) in which they are to describe, compare, and evaluate the individual sites they visited and to give opinions of what was successful, what was not, and why.  This exercise requires information relevant to these observations.  In addition to observing other school settings, students are required to observe in their own classroom daily for a minimum of ten minutes.  Each observation is summarized and an observational journal is passed in for review at designated seminars throughout the practicum.
