To complete this assignment successfully, you should:
When an educational system is content oriented, we tend to look at teacher behavior and measure progress in mastery of content. This tells us a great deal about the teacher, and much of our data about good teaching comes from observing teacher behavior. What if we wanted to know about how effective children find a classroom setting? We could look at scores on achievement tests, but again, we are attending to content.
When a classroom is a systemic blend of teacher, student and content, we begin to look more closely at what students are doing. In this assignment, you will be looking at students and the interaction of student and teacher to learn more about development. The five areas to observe and reflect upon are: physical, emotional, philosophical, social and intellectual, or PEPSI.
