Features of Documentation
The following material summarizes some features of documentation, which are further described in the MLV publication, Making Teaching Visible: Documenting Individual and Group Learning as Professional Development. The ideas stem from our research and collaborations with U.S. teachers as well as with educators from the Reggio Emilia preschools. As a summary, this information provides only the outlines of a more complete picture of documentation. If you have not already done so, you may also wish to consult Some Basics to further explore what MLV means by learning, group learning, and documentation.
