Transcript of Copy of ROSIE-rating observation scale for inspiring environments

Scale for
Environments ROSIE Helps to evaluate the environment in a new perspective
There are three stages:

1) Sprouting:
This is the beginner stage, where you start to understand the basic principles of making an environment attractive

2) Budding:
In this stage you are becoming more aware and skilled, and the environment continues to grow

3) Blooming:
This is the higher level, where you have reached your fullest potential
There are 7 principles 1) You begin with the first principle
2) Read across the three levels of indicator 1 and determine which stage best reflects (sprouting, budding or blooming)
3) Your goal is to reach the next stage of growth
-you receive 1 point for sprouting, 2 for budding and 3 for blooming
4) Once you know your stage of growth, circle the number that reflects your level on the ROSIE observation scoring guide
5) Continue with the remaining principles
6) Then add the totals for each principle together to determine your score KEY IDEAS There are 7 Principles of Design It usually takes about 2 hours to complete the assessment
It is recommended to observe when the children are not there
It is not mandatory to do it all at once, but it is suggested to do it within a week Where and When to use? Weaknesses It focuses only on the indoor environment and not on the outdoor
It can be bias since it depends on self examination
It doesn't look at the interaction or atmosphere of the room How does it support quality? To conclude.. We would recommend this tool because the the authors approach the reader in a friendly manner, which makes them feel comfortable and capable to improve
The authors make useful suggestions in order to get inspired and improve the classroom environment
However we think it should not be the primary assessment in the classroom, but rather a complement specialized in the physical environment Training? It isn't required; however, we found workshops that offer an overview of the scale, as well as there are specific training sessions in the US.
We didn't find any in Canada, but the book is so descriptive and simple it isn't needed. How can it be used? Most quality rating scales identify essential elements for the early childhood classroom, but do not address the aesthetic concepts of the environment such as color, focal point, texture, exhibits, lighting, displays, and the use of space
Using ROSIE we are provoked to evaluate our environment and find ways to inspire children's positive learning and creativity.
If they are in a place where they are comfortable and happy then they will want to learn. Strengths Gives the reader steps to implement ideas that incorporate nature, children's artwork, and everyday classroom materials
Promotes creativity, learning, and simple beauty displayed in the illustrations
Easy ideas to set up the environment. Thank you for your time! let's do a quick practice! Using the paper in front of you read the first indicator and evaluate this room
Is it in the sprouting, budding or blooming stage?
Then, go to the scoring page and circle the number you think the environment best represents
After doing each indicator total your score Principle 6: elements heighten ambiance Scoring example: References DeViney, J., Duncan, S., Rody, M. A., Harris, S., & Rosenberry, L. (2010). Rating observation scale for inspiring environments(rosie). Maryland: Gryphon House. DOI: www.gryphonhouse.com
