Discussion 1.1: How are observation and knowledge of individual development connected?

Observation and knowledge of individual development are connected in that it is difficult to effectively engage a student without both components. It is important for caretakers to observe their students and take note of their behaviors as they participate in activities.
From observing students we are able to assess their current interests and challenges. By accessing knowledge of the individuals development we, as educators, are able to provide the most appropriate methods of providing scaffolding and extra support for students who may need it, while engaging others to help themselves or teach a friend. It is important to understand what each student brings to the classroom that they can share and use to deepen their connection to the school community.
In our classroom we practice helping hands which means that we help others who may be having trouble with something that we are proficient at. It is important to use these observations and prior knowledge of the student as a way to build more opportunities for growth and development.

I agree that by observing students we are able to access where they are developmentally. By having the knowledge of development, we can use the scaffolding approach to help them achieve more opportunities for growth and development.

Observation and knowledge of individual development are connected because during  observation we can see the development stage that each child are individually and then build the best curriculum and lesson plan for help this child succeed.

Observation and knowledge of individual development are connected in that observation allows you to get a better idea on how the child is developing. Observation allows you to see if the child is struggling with something within their developmental stage. This allows teachers to scaffold the curriculum in a way that supports the child's development and what they are struggling with.

If your observations of your students aren't done with background knowledge of typical child development then those observations won't be useful to measure the students success. These are intertwined.

If you want to be aware of the individual development occurring among your students, you will need to observe them. In order to efficiently observe this development you need to have some knowledge of individual development and how to identify growth and struggles.

How are observation and knowledge of individual development connected?

You make observations of a child in the classroom, compare the child’s activity and learning to where a they would usually be on the development continuum for their age and see if there are any areas that might need intervention or additional support to take them to the next level of development. Teachers are then able to take their observations and a curriculum, and offer scaffolding approach lessons to further support a child’s learning.

For we can connect the observation and knowledge of individual connections is necessary first to observe the child, and check his or her skills and difficulties to make different activities during the class. we need to take notes that our observations. Then we need to work in how we can to help at the child in his or her develop.

Observation and knowledge of individual development are connected because to help a child develop you have to observe where they currently are and then either guide them, help them, and encourage them to grow on the continuum.

When a child is observed we obtain knowledge into where that child is developmentally where they excel and where there might be challenges. Knowing this information through observation lets us plays a key role in developing curriculum and if they need additional support setting that child up with the right support.

In order to have knowledge about an individual child's development we must first observe them in a variety of environments to have an understanding of where they are at in a variety of skill sets that feed into their development.

Observation of a child in various settings helps the caregiver to gain knowledge in how to best help them to learn.
