The Observation, Documentation, and Shared Reflection Process: Preparing Early Childhood Educators to Teach in Alaska Native Communities
The article describes a study of early childhood teachers in rural school districts in Alaska. The purpose of the study was to provide the teachers with observation skills that would enable them to make decisions that foster appropriate development and cultural responses to the children's needs. The study relied on the principle that intrinsic changes can occur in program management, curriculum development, and teacher practice when teachers learn how to use observation of children rather than external evaluation to make decisions about their programs.
