OBSERVATION 2 Upon getting the permission from Ray’s parents I conducted an observation on their son having in mind all the factors that are ethical as outlined in the NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct. This code provides universally accepted guidelines to use in assessing early childhood development solving related misunderstandings. In examining Ray’s cognitive development I will employ the use of a Running Record which involves observing his behaviors and making conclusions. To assess his motor development I will use an Event Sampling form in which I will simulate an activity at a specific time and watch his behavior and finally conclude on the consequent event. Observation Summary The whole process of studying the behavior and perception of children is an adventure which is both interesting and challenging. For the case of Ray, the observation of his learning process was interesting and satisfying since I got the feedback I needed in every action I insinuated for example calling his name. The child was very receptive and responded to major events I wanted him to react to. When I called his name he turned his head towards my direction as I kept on changing my positions he never lost eye contact. He also stretched his hand towards me when I was handing him a toy and nodded his head when I played music in my cell phone. Despite being so jovial and receptive the child easily got bored and cried. This was a major drawback to the study since amidst the observation process he cried and his mother had to pick him up. The most enjoyable part of the study was to see how hard the baby tried to reach for brightly colored toys. I put dull colored toy close to him and the brightly colored one some distance away. Thou both were toys of a car, he crawled away from the dull one and headed for the bright one.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
