Observation Plan

“According to child development specialists, one of the most accurate ways to learn about children is to observe them in daily activities” (Wortham, 2012, p. 117).  Among the many types of observation discussed in Chapter 5, anecdotal records, running records, time sampling, and event sampling are widely used in schools and centers across the nation.  For this discussion, you will begin to develop a plan for the observation types you will use in your written assignment this week, which involves the observation of an actual child.  Here is what you are asked to do:Choose either anecdotal or running records.  Describe the record type and explain its characteristics.  Discuss whether you will be observing social/emotional development, physical development, cognitive development, or language development (choose one), and what the purposes are for assessing that domain.Next, choose either time sampling or event sampling.  Describe the sampling method and tell what its characteristics are. Discuss whether you will be observing social/emotional development, physical development, cognitive development or language development (choose one that is a different domain from above) and what the purposes are for assessing that domain.Attached is an example of the anecdotal and running record as well as the time and event sampling.Here is a video to assist you with this discussion this, all about the observation process:The Center for Early Childhood Education [EarlyChildhooldVideos].

Major Writing Project 2Major Writing Project 2:  Entering a Conversation (4 pages)Instructions:  Chooseoneof the sets of essays listed below (Kelly and Gladstone together make up a “set”; Carr and Thompson together make up a “set,” etc.).  Your essay should include summaries of both of the authors’ arguments (“they say”); your argument should point out how the authors agree and disagree; and your argument should include your own response to the issues the two essays raise (“I say”).  The “I say” is your own argument concerning the issues.Make sure you include a naysayer to show possible objections to your own argument, and address the “so what” factor: why does this issue matter?Make sure you use proper formatting (MLA or APA style, double-spaced, Times or Times New Roman font, 12 point, paragraphs indented).Make sure you have a proper heading at the top of the first page (name, etc.)Your paper should be about 4 pages.Plagiarism will not be tolerated.I recommend you take a look at the Grading Guide (below), which explains how I will grade your papers.MWP 2 isdue Friday, January 12, by 11:59pm.  Click the link below to submit your paper.Recommended structure:  For this paper you have four pages to work with and you need to include, in effect, five major parts:Introduction: includes basic information about authors, a very brief summary of authors’ ideas (a sentence or two), a brief statement of your argument (or thesis statement), and a brief explanation of why your argument mattersSummary of 2 authors, with quotes as evidenceSummary of how they agree/disagree; provide quotes if necessaryYour own opinion and your reasons for your opinion (which includes at least one naysayer); provide quotes as evidenceConclusion:  includes a return sentence, a restatement of your argument, and a developed explanation of why your argument mattersNote that those are five parts, not paragraphs (exceptions: the introduction and the conclusion are usually one paragraph each).  What could this look like?  Here’s an example:  After the brief introductory paragraph (where you introduce your topic, basic information about your authors with brief summaries of authors’ ideas, a sense of your argument and perhaps why your argument matters), you might have a summary of one author (1 paragraph), then a summary of the second author (1 paragraph).  Then you might have one paragraph that explains how they agree or disagree (though you can already allude to that in the summary paragraphs through phrases like “Unlike Turkle, Wortham asserts that…”).  Note that the paragraph that explains how the two authors agree or disagree is still “they say,” since you’re not yet putting forward your own opinion on the issues.  At that point you’ll have written about 2 pages.  Then you write your own argument (“I say”) in relation to what they say (about a page and a half).  At that point you’ve written about 3.5 pages.  Then you end with one short concluding paragraph, where you wrap it up with a return sentence and again explain why it matters.Keep in mind: this way of structuring this assignment is only a suggestion; it doesn’t have to be exactly like that.  But hopefully this gives you an idea of what this kind of paper could look like.SetsSet 1:Kevin Kelly, “Better than Human: Why Robots Will – and Must – Take Our Jobs” (299)Brooke Gladstone and Josh Neufeld, “The Influencing Machines” (330)Set 2:Nicholas Carr, “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” (313)Clive Thompson, “Smarter than You Think:  How Technology Is Changing Our Minds for the Better” (340)Set 3:Sherry Turkle, “No Need to Call” (373)Jenna Wortham, “I Had a Nice Time with You Tonight.  On the App.” (393)Set 4:Michaela Cullington, “Does Texting Affect Writing?” (361)Malcolm Gladwell, “Small Change: Why the Revolution Will Not Be Tweeted” (399)Grading Guide: I will use the following grading guide to grade your papers.  Think of it as a “cheat sheet,” but without the “cheating” part.  It’ll help you figure out how to get a good grade on MWP 2.Introduction (10 points)Includes basic information about the authors as well as the full titles of essays; includes a brief summary statement about essays; includes a clear thesis statement (summary of “I say” in relation to “They Say”).“They say” inhabits world-view of each author (20 points)Each summary does not agree or disagree with author (summary inhabits worldview of author); each summary uses sophisticated signal verbs to summarize author’s points; no listing of author’s points or “closest cliché” (pp. 31, 35, 33)Quoting: Uses quotes correctly and appropriately (20 points)Quotes used to present “proof of evidence” (p. 42) in summary of authors’ arguments — Quotes should not be “orphans” (p. 43) — Quotes should be framed appropriately (“quotation sandwich”) (p. 46) — Quotes should be Introduced with appropriate verb (p. 47) – Indicates page number of quote (p. 48)”I say” clearly agrees, disagrees, or combination of agrees and disagrees (20 points)Clear “I say” statement in introduction, placed in relation to authors – Clear statements of agreement, disagreement, or both (use at least one template per author on pp. 60, 62, 64-66) – Clearly distinguishes “they say” from “I say” – Clearly signals who is saying what: Uses at least one template from pp. 72-75 – “I say” includes clear reasons for argument that are not simply summaries of authors’ arguments – Clearly plants naysayer to support “I say” argument (use at least one template from pp. 82, 83,84-85, 89).Clearly states why the argument matters (10 points)Uses at least one “who cares?” template from pp. 95-96;

Can you help me with my assignment!!!

The Assignment:This assignment will have two parts:1.) SummarySummarize in 150-200 words the article your instructor has chosen from the assignment: “Children Need to Play, Not Compete,” on pages 270-274 of your 9th edition textbook (or on pages 276-279 of your 8th edition textbook or pages 287-291 in your 7th edition textbook).  In this summary, you should relay the article’s main points, completely and accurately, in your own words.  If you find yourself in a situation in which the author’s words needed to be quoted directly (perhaps for emphasis), you must make it clear that these words are the author’s by using quotation marks appropriately.  You will not want to quote anything over one sentence in length, and you will want to limit yourself to no more than 2-3 direct quotes, if you use any at all.  Remember that the whole point of this portion of the assignment is for you to restate the author’s points objectively in your own words.In general, I recommend you structure your first sentence something like this:In “Children Need to Play, Not Compete, Jessica Statsky…This will function as the thesis statement of your summary, so this first sentence will need to convey the main point(s) of the article to give your reader an overall view.2.) ResponseWrite a detailed response (1 ½ to 2 pages minimum, or at least 400-500 words) to “Children Need to Play, Not Compete.” Before you even begin drafting, you will want to decide on the terms of your response.  Once you decide on the terms (or grounds) of your response, you’ll want to figure out how you can support your points—using logic, outside evidence, examples from your personal life—whatever is appropriate.
