DOUBLE TAP TO ZOOM WITH PHONE OR TABLET REGGIO / ASSESSMENT The what, the why, and the how of pedagogical documentation What does your classroom say about the children’s ideas, inquiries, learning, and play? Pedagogical Documentation in Early Childhood will help you answer those questions and create documentation that tells the story of children’s exploration. This practical guide provides rich ideas, useful references, beautiful visuals, and the framework to get you started. Pedagogical Documentation in Early Childhood gives you: • Ideas for developing the documentation habit • Tools for communicating the curriculum and children’s experiences to families and others • Tips on design aspects including text, photos, and assembling large projects • Tools for increased collaboration, learning, and curriculum development At the end of each chapter you will find an invitation to explore, which offers you a starting point if you are new to pedagogical documentation, or a pathway to deeper reflection if you are already practicing it. With this book you can create documentation that is insightful, beautifully presented, and thought provoking. “Stacey reminds us that the value of documentation goes beyond an attractive display on the walls—at its best it leads to reflection and dialogue. This book offers a number of valuable and practical examples of how to focus the work of pedagogical documentation. If we are to put the idea of teacher research into real life, pedagogical documentation is a cornerstone. Stacey’s very practical book brings the practice to life.” —Margie Carter, early childhood consultant and co-author, The Visionary Director, Designs for Living and Learning, and Learning Together with Young Children Susan Stacey has spent more than 35 years in early childhood education, doing everything from working with children to conducting research.
