Week by Week: Documenting the Development of Young Children presents the accepted methods of recording developmental observations, including their advantages and disadvantages, giving educators the information they need to make an educated choice. The author also has added an overview of child development with the premise that one must know what to look for as well as how to record it. The most unique feature of this publication is a manageable weekly system to gather data on all children in all developmental areas over the course of a year, using methods that are the most appropriate for that particular development. Each developmental area is revisited at least three times. Forms for recording observation and charts for tracking these efforts, along with recommendations for making the time to invest in these important activities, make this a must-have guide and resource for teachers.
