I chose to make a relatively simple infographic with tips to think about when observing students. During my reading of the chapter, I felt that the six elements of observation were going to be key for me to remember when I observe my students (Merriam & Tisdell, 2016). I was able to find helpful ideas from other sources as well. I also looked into my past research field notes and observation documents for more ideas.
