The Power of Observation explores the vital connection between observation and effective teaching. Much more than a set of skills, observation is a mind-set of openness and wonder that helps teachers and caregivers learn more about each child in their care. The link between observation and relationship building is an important theme of this book. The authors share their own experiences, and those of many others, to illustrate how observation helps teachers and caregivers become more effective in the child care center, preschool, family child care home, and elementary classroom. They offer guidelines for effective observation and specific strategies to help you refine your skills and make observation an integral part of your teaching. This second edition includes expanded guidance on applying what you learn from observation to your daily practices. It also features a new study guide that is informed by recommendations from the many university and community college professors who use the book as a textbook for their courses. We are pleased that the National Association for the Education of Young Children has chosen to make this book a 2007 Comprehensive Member Benefit. Book jacket.
