    Description & More Details

    Published by Redleaf Press Free sample chapter

    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—filled 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.
