“How can we tell where children stand in their physical, cognitive, socioemotional, language, and creative development? Do we test them? Measure them? Compare them?”

This textbook teaches students how to become observers and how to document their findings using one tool: The Child Development Checklist. The author posits that the best method to determine a child’s strengths is for the teacher to observe the young child in the regular classroom based on a particular set of criteria. The reasons for assessing children in this manner are:

It allows students of child development to gain an in-depth understanding of real children and their sequences of growth.

It helps teachers of young children to become aware of each child’s growth and to support individual development with appropriate activities and materials.

Once the child’s strengths have been assessed, the book then provides suitable lesson plans and activities to support the child’s development.
