What Does Your Child Really Know? Supporting Teachers to Listen Closely to Our Children
Cox Suárez, Stephanie
New Educator, v10 n1 p70-76 2014
Close listening and observation of children as an alternative assessment is a powerful approach that can help balance an emphasis on standardized measurement. The tool of Reggio-inspired documentation is described for families with suggestions on how to advocate and support teachers who want to tell a story about children's learning that highlights social language, collaboration, and problem solving and to serve as evidence in meeting required curriculum standards.
