What's In This Kit?
This training kit helps teachers take a deeper look at the role of observation and documentation to inform teaching practices, curriculum planning, and to make learning visible. Teachers learn how to research and explore the theories, thoughts, ideas, and emotions of children through the cycle of observation and documentation. Teachers will develop strategies to formulate research questions, gather data through observation and documentation, and analyze the data to inform practice. Teachers will also learn how to share their data through a documentation panel. Documentation is a powerful tool to make learning visible to the untrained eye.
