"What can I document?"

Chanie WilschanskiComment

So often I hear from teachers, “What can I document?” 

There are so many activities, experiences and discoveries that happen during one day!

  • How do you really decide what is worth the time?
  • Your energy?
  • The school resources?
  • What can wait or doesn’t make sense to have a whole board for it right now?
  • What types of formats are there for documentation?
  • Do I have to create a whole story board and a panel?

(Below is a documentation display I created a few years ago that was inspired by the children's snowman creations.)


All these options and different ways to document can instill paralysis in a teacher, and then cause her to do nothing.

It’s just too much!

So I often I find directors struggling to offer the right support for their staff when it comes to documentation WITHOUT pressuring them too much.

So then what is the solution? 

There are many different ways to document. 

Today, I want to share with you one format for documentation.
