Directions: The final assignment is your chance to demonstrate how you will use data to drive your instruction. First, find a video on YouTube or another platform that allows you to observe a child. Next, use any observation technique that you choose to collect data on the child. Write a synopsis with information from your observation. Finally, create a classroom-type of activity that addresses the unique needs of the student you observed. Think about an introduction activity, an individual and/or small group experience, and a closing wrap-up. Use research to back up your ideas.
Synopsis-Include a link to the video you used for this project. Give details about what you observed and be specific with regard to the three domains we learned about. Use references throughout this section. Include the tool you used to collect data (checklist, anecdotal record, etc.). Write about the activity plan you will design to meet the needs of the student. Give concrete details. This section should be at least three paragraphs long.
Activity Plan-Include the objective or goal of your activity. Give step-by-step details for each aspect (opening activity, group experiences, closure/wrap up).
Conclusion-Include a conclusion section that allows you to reflect on the entire project. What did you learn? What would you change? Make connections between the course content and your final project. This section should be at least one to three paragraphs long.
References-Include a reference page using APA style.
