I have not been reading much in the last few weeks while preparing for the presentation I am to do tomorrow. The PD (professional development) session I am presenting to my co-workers is on pedagogical documentation and how to use the Google Apps to document student learning.
I did some reading to find evidence of why documenting our students’ learning is helpful. As I reread an article, a sentence stood out that I had not taken note of before:
“It is not only our students’ thinking that becomes visible through pedagogical documentation, but our thinking as educators becomes visible as well, opening up the possibility for shared reflection on the learning process.” (Capacity Building Series: Pedagogical Documentation, p.2)
I have come to realise that my documentation certainly shows parents what I am thinking and what I am looking for as I observe their children learning.

What are you reading this week? Feel free to share a few sentences from the book in the comments.
