TUFTS UNIVERSITY ELIOT-PEARSON DEPARTMENT OF CHILD DEVELOPMENT CD090 THE EXCEPTIONAL CHILD Dr. Janet Zeller SPRING 2007 OBSERVATION ASSIGNMENT For this assignment, you will write an analytic paper based on your extensive observations of two wonderful children at TEDCC (&/or EPCS). Your paper will focus on a comparison of the two youngsters along the variables listed below. You will need to observe each child at least four times, so plan to begin this assignment as soon as possible. The Special Education Coordinators at TEDCC and EPCS will come to our class and present the children who can serve as “targets” for your observations. You will also receive all necessary classroom schedules and appointment procedures in class. OBSERVATION QUESTIONS/FOCI Choose all or some from among these: 1. What are the child’s strengths and areas of special need? 2. What is the evidence that the child is an integrated member of her/his classroom group?
