Provocation 2c: Uncovering Thinking Through Pedagogical Documentation
Context for your inquiry: To understand children’s mathematical thinking, educators are using documentation to capture conversations, observations and student work. Then, using an “analysis protocol,” they are studying the evidence of student thinking and learning, which enables them to facilitate learning conversations with students, other educators and families, and to take the learning even further. This assessment for learning process is called pedagogical documentation.
