To evaluate an individual child’s curricular experiences over one day


To evaluate an individual child's curricular experiences over one day.

Evidence and reflection

Identify a child for detailed observation. Record the major curriculum activities in which he or she engages during this period. You might do this by briefly recording the following:

Time activity started/ended

Curriculum subject (English, History, etc.)

Curriculum activity (reading, task completion, independent study, painting, etc.)


What kind of breadth and balance exists in the observed curriculum of your target child? Is any action or curriculum adjustment necessary?
