Come to the Next ORA Documentation Session

Sunday, October 23, 2011

Hello to those following our blog!

If you are interested in documentation, please consider attending the Ontario Reggio Association's next documentation study session on Saturday, November 12th, 2011 between 10:00-12:00 p.m.  at York University.  The following date is schedule for Saturday, December 3rd, 2011.

During these sessions, educators bring documentation (a single picture, documentation panel, transcription of students' theories, etc.) and together share with the group the learning story/stories.  In collaboration with one another we observe the documentation, analyze it, and assist in projecting next steps.

Participants have included teachers (both from the public and private sphere), registered early childhood educators, consultants, graduate students, Ministry of Education representatives, administrators, etc.  Even if you do not have a piece of documentation, you will find the session to be a great opportunity to interpret students' inquiries and theories.

If you are interested in attending, please email me at joanne.babalis@yrdsb.edu.on.ca and I can provide you with the directions.

Hope to see you there!
