This workbook establishes and describes a format for acquiring knowledge and skill in observing, recording and interpreting the behavior of young children. It offers and outlines a variety of observation assignments and was developed to be used primarily but not exclusively in conjunction with OBSERVING AND RECORDING THE BEHAVIOR OF YOUNG CHILDREN, Third Edition by Cohen, Stern and Balaban. Yet, this edition is designed so it may be used as an independent text if desired. Forms for reporting on each observation are provided and the pages can be easily removed from the binding.
