This book of 37 problem-solving case studies in education is based on actual situations, but the stories-without-an-ending leave students puzzling over what to do. Problem-solving cases can be short and simple or rich in detail and multi-layered, but they share the distinction of being based on reality, encouraging student-generated analysis.
  • A Guide to Observation, Participation, and Reflection in the Classroom (with forms for field use). This complete, hands-on guide to classroom observations is designed specifically for use by students prior to their student teaching. The workbook provides detailed guidelines for observing the dynamics of the classroom, participating with the classroom teacher, and then reflecting on the experience.

Patterson selected the video and wrote modules that can be assigned to students. The modules also include suggestions for additional projects as well as a testing component.

  • Understanding Children: An Interview and Observation Guide. This hands-on guide for interviewing and observing children in educational settings is a supplement for courses taken by elementary and middle school education majors. It includes a rationale for interviewing and observing children as a way to understand their behaviour, learning, and development, and it makes connections to the work of major developmental theorists and educational researchers. It provides practical tips for incorporating observations and interviews of children into teachers’ busy schedules and discusses the analysis of observational data and its uses for guiding educational practices (e.g., instruction, cooperative grouping, and parent conferences). The guide’s organization follows the topical organization of most child development textbooks.
