Hi all, I am teaching the child development OCR 2012 spec and I am just starting the child study task. I am finding there is very vague and very limited guidance on how to teach or how to complete this. I am struggling to give the students guidance on the type of appropriate questions they can research (there is only a few examples in the textbook) and I cannot find a completed piece of coursework to use that will guide me and guide my teaching. OCR has themes: Physical Development, fine manipulative skills, creative play, social skills, intellectual development and language skills. There are examples in the test book of questions such as 'how does a three and a half year old child demonstrate creative play skills?'. That is fine but in an observation I'm not sure whether they need to use a behavioural checklist and come up with a list of behaviours beforehand to see what they are looking for. I'm not sure what the 'methods' they talk about in the textbook are. I understand about time and event sampling (I am a psychology teacher primarily) but I don't know if this is what OCR is talking about and whether this is appropriate. I have gotten them to brain storm areas which interest them and will get them to do some very broad secondary research but I am struggling to know where to go from there. Any help would be appreciated!
