The paper discusses and describes the observation of a preschooler, explaining that the purpose of the observation was to focus on one child and the developmental issues that revolved around that student. The paper then goes on to appy the theories of Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky on the child development processes to the preschooler observed.
From the Paper:"Diana was a healthy, vibrant child that appeared to be quite intelligent and socially active with her peers. She was capable of receiving abundant amounts of information and using that information to attempt new concepts in her play and class work. However, Diana also asked the teacher to consistently repeat some ideas and she was concerned with her own needs on a consistent basis. Nevertheless, as Diana continued to function in the classroom, she was influenced by the actions of her peers, which often changed her focus from herself to activities that her peers were involved with."
