Product Overview

Observation: The Key to Responsive Teaching

When teachers observe in a purposeful way, they form stronger relationships with children and families and become more responsive to children’s individual needs in the classroom.

A companion piece to The Power of Observation, the workbook and DVD guide teachers through the four phases of using observation to teach responsively:

  1. asking questions
  2. watching, listening, and recording
  3. reflecting
  4. responding.

Sixteen exercises are linked to 3- to 5-minute video clips to give teachers practice in observing children in action as they work, play, and interact with adults, materials, and other children.

Includes: DVD; workbook, 97 pages
