Social-emotional development
Strong social-emotional development underlies all later social, emotional, and academic success.” In an engaging, reader-friendly style, this NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct describes developmentally appropriate guidance in the encouraging classroom. With this approach, teachers think beyond the kind of conventional classroom discipline that aims merely to keep children in line—and often fails even to do that! Teachers are to help children develop lifelong skills such as mutual acceptance and cooperation, creative and peaceful problem-solving strategies, and acceptable ways to express difficult emotions.
1. Patience and Understanding are used with guidance; teachers are firm when needed, but firm and friendly, not firm and harsh.
2. With misbehavior or mistaken behavior teachers do well to think of a child’s age in terms of months rather than years. They understand that young children are just beginning to learn difficult life skills that may take a lifetime to master.
3. A partnership between the teacher, the child, and the family is necessary for guidance to be effective. Beyond Discipline to Guidance / 19

...Observations Petrina M Murti PSY/230 October 27, 2012 Amanda Martin There are several different ways I have used the scientific process to better understand my personality. Unsystematic observation known as the first step to the scientific process was used in my early adulthood experiences, for many years I thought the people I surrounded myself with were true friends, I started drinking heavily, displayed negative behavior and did not care about my purpose in life. That was my environment and that is how we lived until I started realizing there is more to life than just this. Building theories which is step two in the scientific process was what I used to get myself out of the environment I was once in; I started formulating different questions pertaining to my life and what I wanted out of it. Because of questions and wanting more in life, it resulted in me changing and moving away from the environment. Evaluating propositions describes “the scientist attempts to evaluate or justify the truth of a given statement” (McAdams, pg. 16, 2009) because I observed these so called friends for years and the environment I was growing to become it made me question and theorize the purpose in my life and in turn I justified my change by moving away from the negative environment. Now that I am in school and have goals in life, evaluating propositions have been confirmed from my theories of my life years ago. I am proud that I have grown in to the......

...Bsma Tolfree Unit 1 Individual Project Scientific Method May 1, 2011 OBSERVATION: During the winter, you spread salt daily on your driveway to melt the snow. In the springtime, when the lawn begins to grow, you notice that there is no grass growing for about three inches from the driveway. Furthermore, the grass seems to be growing more slowly up to about one foot from the driveway. QUESTION: I wonder if the grass growth is inhibited by salt? INTRODUCTION: Salt is a chemical compound (NaCl), or Sodium Chloride. Sodium Chloride has many uses in everyday life, such as in our bodies, in our food, and on our road ways. Having two elements, Sodium and Chloride, each have a number of jobs to do in our bodies. Salt is found in many of our foods naturally, from fish to vegetables, as well as being used for cooking and at the table. Also salt is used all over the world when it snows to prevent slip and falls and car accidents by it being sprinkled on sidewalks and road ways to melt the ice. When salt hits water or ice it lowers the freezing point in an effect known as freezing point depression and melting it in the process. According to (greenergreengrass.com) salt can also affect the pH of soil and can create an unsuitable environment for grass and plants to grow. HYPOTHESIS: The grass that gets exposed to more salt will not grow as much as the grass that gets exposed to little or no salt. PREDICTION: If the grass is exposed to salt then it will not grow as fast......

Child Observation Report

...Child Observation Report Lecturer: Dr. Stephanie L. Knight Observer: Afra Mohamed Taha Observant: 3-4 year old boy Topic: Entire Observation Setting: Airport. A family consists of a father, a mother, three daughters and a son. Goal: Observing the boy to see his entire behavior, in addition to his reaction to reinforcement and punishment. Time: 52 minutes Method used: Systematic Observation (Specimen Record and Event Sampling) Data collection: This report is based on a “Systematic Observation” (Berk, 2003, p.44). I designed a simple form to record the data based on specimen record and event sampling in which the researcher records a description of the particular entire steam of behavior, in addition to all instances of particular behavior during a specified time period. (Berk, 2003, p.44-45) Analysis and Discussion: According to Piaget Cognitive Development Theory (Berk, 2003, p.133), this child is in the preoperational stage (2-7 years), and he behaves normally. When the father left he was upset. His mother asked him to sit still in one of the chairs. He was lying in an arm chair, moving his legs up and down. Then he put his feet on the armrest of the chair next to him, where his sister was sitting. He repeated this behavior several times in attempt to hit his sister. That made his mother tell him off. However, he still didn't respond. Then he put......

...Observation The student is considered a novice as an observer of children. The student observes children to gain practice and understanding in child development. Students have an obligation to protect children and respect school personnel. Observers are usually visitors in the classroom. The observer must keep in mind that they are a disruption to the regular processes in the classroom and they should respect the classroom teacher’s direction. The protection of the child’s rights in any type of child study is important. Regardless of the procedure used to collect information, the child’s protection is paramount. The child must not come to any harm (physical or mental) through participation in the observation process. Confidentiality must be utilized at all times. Talking about children and families with others outside of class or with the classroom teacher is prohibited. Please use fictitious names in written reports. Any concerns about a child’s safety should be addressed immediately with the classroom teacher or other responsible party. Observation tells us about children’s behavior – what they are doing. If we want to understand children’s development in school settings then we should observe them in those settings. Observation that takes place in a natural environment is referred to as naturalistic observation. Qualities of a Good Observer: · Recognize personal bias and preconceived assumptions about children. · Stay focus for a long......

Observation

...Every day, people all over the world travel to different places out side of his or her home. He or she will encounter many different types of people and different experiences. When this happens, the opportunity becomes available to observe his or her surroundings. I wanted to do the observation experiment at a place I find to be very interesting, it was a Tattoo Shop. This was a place that I felt was on the same standers as a mall and it was also a place that I visited and thought that it would be interesting to observe the people in my surroundings. At the tattoo shop, people of all walks of life come for different personal reasons. Some people came to get a tattoo because they lost a love one and wanted to honor his or her memory. Some came to get a tattoo because he or she loved the art, and some people were there just to support some one else. As I sat in my chair doing this observation, I listen to a young lady who came to the Shop with her friend. She stated that she was there to get a sleeve done on her arm. If you are unfamiliar with what a sleeve is, it is when a person gets a tattoo that goes from the shoulder area down to the wrist area of the arm. This young lady was there getting something that she felt meant something to her. She was getting a picture of a clock with the saying “Only Time Will Tell” drawn on her arm. As I listen to her talk with her friend I could see the sadness in her eyes as she tried to joke with her party. After she was serviced, the......

...FIELDNOTES: A GUIDE FOR RESEARCHERS Fieldnotes: "The observations written by a researcher at a research site, during an interview, and throughout the data collection process" (FW, 501). I. REQUIREMENTS Much of the hard work of ethnography happens in the observations and fieldnotes. At times, you’ll feel as though it’s tedious to take fieldnotes; however, taking detailed notes gives you a set of data from which to look for patterns and ideas. In order to complete your field notes successfully, you will need to: General Requirements Spend at least one hour a week observing your community; While you’re observing, write substantial (3+ pages of observation weekly) field notes. Take time after you’ve observed to write meaningful, thoughtful questions and reflections on the “analysis” side of your double-entry field notes (explained in “Strategies” below). Date each entry, and number each page (This is vital! If you fail to date and number each page of your fieldnotes, you will be lost when it comes time to write up your research and prepare your Research Portfolio for the Celebration of Student Writing) Write legibly enough that someone else could read them. Keep them organized (in your Research Portfolio, among your artifacts and other fieldwork) Taking good fieldnotes requires that to divide the process into two phases: (1) notes you take while you are in the field (Observational/Descriptive fieldnotes) and (2) notes you take after you......

Observation Report

...Artina Robinson December 8, 2013 EDU 210 Nancy Winship A Night at Tijuanna Flats Is a Sunday evening around 5:06 PM. I pulled into the Tijuana Flats parking lot. As I entered into the restaurant I noticed that it is not as full as it normally would be. As I ordered my food I noticed two parties sitting at the table. The first party was a young couple who looked to be in the 20s and the other party was a family of 7.  Within the family there were five children, 3 boys and 2 girls. The boys look to be between the ages of 5 to 12 and the girls look to be between the ages of 1 and 8.  The children dressed like typical 21st-century kids, the boys Graphic T-shirts and shorts and the girls multiple colored top with fitted shorts. As the family waiting for their food I noticed that the oldest and the youngest boy were playing on the tablet together and the oldest girl and the middle boy were swapping an iPhone and a tablet amongst each other. Whatever game they were playing must have been very interesting because when their food came they were eating and playing their devices at the same time. Overall the 4 children seem to be pretty happy and enjoy each other's company. As I was eating my food I noticed the youngest boy yell out "oh yeah I shot him right in the butt ". I looked to see what reaction the parents would give but to my surprise they didn't even flinch. The mother continued to play and feed the one-year-old and the father continued to watch the reviews of the......

...Day Care: Preschool: 4 yrs old, one 5yr old. I was placed to observe the Preschool 4 year olds during my clinical observation at the Daycare. Stages of Development: Eric Erikson: Initiative vs. Guilt. During this stage the child are focused on purpose, exploration and egocentric ideas and speech. During this period the preschooler experiences a desire to copy adults around them, take initiative in play situations, make up stories using barbies, toy phones, cars, playing roles like “Ninja” and “Pirate” They use imagination and fantasy during play and use parallel play. The also explore the world by asking “WHY” and “HOW” to understand new things.The preschoolers all become involved in the oedipal struggle. If they get frustrated over desires and goals they experience guilt. If they are unsuccessful at achieving a goal they become aggressive and may act is disapproving behavior. Piaget: Preoperational- Egocentric During this stage the child is selfish and believes they are the center of attention. They begin to feel that what they say is most important and all attention should be focused towards them. They often speak when others are speaking and get frustrated when they are not listened to. In the classroom, I observed many of these characteristics of the preschooler. Upon my arrival they all ran to me and all wanted me to themselves, offering their choice of play. They all agreed to give me “Breakfast” where I sat at a play kitchen table in their......

...Matttt robins Section 1: Observations I observed a child from Early Morning Learning Center at Gateway Community College. There, I observed my student Jerome for a total of five hours in 3 days. The Early Morning Learning Center at Gateway consisted of nineteen children ranging from ages 3 to 5 years old. The center had five adult workers whose job it was to watch and help the children. The days I observed the children were either in the classroom or on the playground. The student I chose to observe was an Africana American by the name of Jerome. As I arrived to the Early Morning Learning center the kids were out playing on around the playground. Jerome was riding one of the tricycles along with a couple other classmates. While riding away from other class mates Jerome yells “you can’t get me”. After Jerome places the tricycle down, a kid playing basketball asked Jerome to play saying “do you want to play”? Jerome begins playing with the other children. The children begin taking turns putting the ball in the basket. Before, placing the ball in the basket Jerome would jump. After a few times, Jerome took the ball to the wall and started getting a running start to put the ball in the basket. Then he began counting to three before taking his running start to put the ball in the basket. Jerome did this another four times. While playing basketball, the children were lining up back to back to see who’s the taller or tallest. When it came down to Jerome and another......

...OBSERVATION REPORT (Observe – to pay attention to, to perceive or notice, to watch, to recognize or note occurrences, to draw inferences, to remark or comment) The Observation Report is to be the result of an in-person observation made for the purpose of partially fulfilling the requirements of this course, and must include a complete and comprehensive report on any 2.5 hours of observation from the list of choices below, exclusive of breaks and recesses. The observation report shall include the type of observation, the name of the presiding officer, the physical location of the observation, the parties involved, the issues, any decisions made and your personal comments regarding how you “see” the proceedings. Please place emphasis on your personal comments, clearly including what you “bring to the table” (your personal background and why you selected your observation). NOTE: Dr. Flower is the only person who will read your reports. You should, prior to the observation, make notes on your preconceived notions, ideas, and perceptions on what you expect to observe. Your pre-work should then be contrasted or compared with your actual observations. Your “gut” reactions to issues, personalities, competencies and results will most likely be very accurate and should serve as the backbone of your report. DO NOT wait until the last minute to attend the observation since it is common for students to discover the scheduled or planned observation does not take place when......
