3 Part Virtual Series The Documentation Process
In this 3-part series, we will look at the role of teacher as researcher and how to use the tools of documentation to develop and share emergent curriculum:
In the first session, we will define the role of the teacher and explore the Cycle of Inquiry as a curriculum tool.
In the second session, we will dig deeper into the purpose and types of documentation, including process and final documentation panels.
In the third session, participants will be asked to bring a documentation piece that they are working on to encourage collaboration and support.
Please note that you must attend all 3 sessions.
