Child Development Observation #2

[WLOs: 1, 3] [CLOs: 2, 4]

As you discovered in Week 2 of the course, formally observing childrens’ behavior is an important step in determining their current stage of development and enhancing our ability to support and foster growth in areas where children may not excel. Chapters 7 and 8 of your textbook describe stages of physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and language development in children 4 – 5 years of age and 6 – 8 years of age. Use the textbook in addition to the video provided with the instructions for this assignment as resources.

Developmental Checklist: 6 To 8 Years

In your three- to four-page paper or six- to eight-slide Power Point Presentation,

  • While watching your chosen video, complete the sections of the corresponding developmental checklist that you observed, including the summary section.
    • Note: You will not be able to complete all sections, so many will no doubt be left blank and you do not have to complete the whole checklist.
    • Be sure to include this as the first page of your assignment (after your title page).
  • Discuss the typical development that you observed in the child (i.e., the areas that you were able to check off on the checklist).
  • Explain any developmental concerns you have for this child based on your observation (i.e., the areas that you were not able to check off on the checklist).
  • Explain, based on your observation and your desired future professional role, how you might support this child using developmentally appropriate practices.
    • What are some developmentally appropriate activities you can do with this child that will support at least two different developmental domains?

What are one or two considerations or suggestions that should be included into the classroom environment to support the needs of the child?

The Child Development Observation #2 assignment

  • Must be three to four double-spaced pages in length or six to eight slides in length (not including title and references pages, but including the completed observation checklist) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center (Links to an external site.)’s APA Style (Links to an external site.) resource.
