A practical and accessible introduction to early childhood observation methods.

Take A Look: Observation and Portfolio Assessment in Early Childhood has been praised for its practical approach, clarity, and ease of use. Its detailed coverage of observation methods leads the reader to develop skills in seeing, recording, understanding, and assessing the development of young children. These essential skills are presented both within a culturally-sensitive framework and with an emphasis on the complexities and importance of the reader’s role.
Sue Martin is an instructor at Centennial College in Toronto, Ontario. She completed her PhD in Education at the University of Buffalo, New York.
