North American educators were ﬁrst introduced to the idea of pedagogical
documentation through work of the preschools of Reggio Emilia, Italy.
Canadian and U.S. educators have responded with an eager desire to try the
process within their own practices. Nevertheless, producing documentation that
is thoughtful, meaningful, and aesthetically pleasing is a challenge. Pedagogical
Documentation—ﬁ lled with examples from the author as well as new and
seasoned educators from across North America—will guide you through the
process. Pedagogical documentation is an examination of the learning taking
place in children and supports reﬂective practice and decision-making in
teachers. Pedagogical documentation is a powerful tool for communicating a
child’s learning to families. Age focus: 3-8. Softbound, 144 pgs.
