Effective Observation for Educators.
Walker, Evangeline M. L.
Observations and discussions relating to the role value presuppositions have in determining the "facts" upon which children are judged, learning situations structured, and relationships, in general, established are provided. The assumptions or presuppositions are: (1) the assumption that young children necessarily have a short attention span; (2) the assumption that "giving" children language is always a good thing; (3) the assumption that maximum intervention is educationally sound; (4) the assumption that we are neither out-or-our-minds nor out-of-our-bodies; and (5) the assumption that we recognize that we are a violent society. It is concluded that to use observation affectively, an educator must be prepared to continually reassess his own system of values. (DB)
