After we completed an art inquiry on the experimentation with colour, I wondered whether or not the students could help retell their learning story. I showed them a few pieces of documentation, and proposed to them that they try to tell their story.
The students were given a grey door that they could cover, and without any further instruction, I observed them measuring their landscape with rulers and then re-creating it onto the carpet. After they knew how much space they were working with, they chose pictures, art samples, and their written theories to include.
It was really fascinating to watch them make documentation decisions! They reflected about the experience, and tried their best to choose pieces of work that would tell their classmates and visitors what they did. Talk about ownership!!
