Take Another Look is about learning to observe children at play to see how they learn, grow and develop. As well as introducing various methods of observation, Take Another Look discusses other aspects of children's growth - the stages of development, the stages of children's play and adults as learners. Originally published in 1990, this updated and expanded second edition includes the learning opportunities in real life, plus information on theorists who have had an influence in early childhood. Woven throughout the book are the many links with the new early childhood curriculum, Te Whariki. A guide for parents, students and those who work with children. Take Another Look is suitable for those who have little experience in recording observations. It is useful in learning to understand what we see, to "take another look" and see behaviour and development in a new light. Then adults can plan for children's best development opportunities.
