Setting the Parameters

Before bringing the preschool child into the process of a narrative observation, you need to determine the length of time needed and what processes you are observing. If the child is struggling with student to student interaction, setting the time parameters may be as simple as choosing recess time. If the student struggles with reading, the set time may be during silent reading for several days. While a narrative observation can take place in one setting, educators may also find it helpful to reassess over several days. In the preschool age range, shorter narrative observations may be necessary because the attention span of a preschooler is less than that of an older child.
