This well-organized book provides students with a systematic plan for week-by-week documentation of each child's development in an early childhood setting. It presents instruction in the most common recording techniques as well as a review of basic child development principles. By following the week-by-week plan, the observer is able to collect periodic and useful information from a variety of sources. Diagrams, thinking exercises, and case-studies help the content meet the individual learning styles of the readers and the weekly assignments provide manageable collection of data to form a portfolio illustrating the child's development in all areas. This is useful for the child's feeling of competence, the parent's ability to see progress, and the teacher's developmental planning.
