From page 1: “Many [classroom teachers] are employing diverse forms of pedagogical documentation as a powerful way of chronicling student learning in action, attributing value to the thoughts and feelings of the learners themselves during the process.”
From page 2: “Through documentation, and the conversations it inspires, learners are empowered to articulate their thinking, feelings, and beliefs about themselves and their learning. Listening to learners, teachers learn to attribute value to aspects of learning experiences from the learner’s perspective.”
