Slide 26

Hart’s Ladder of Participation (UNICEF) Children’s Participation: From Tokenism to Citizenship (1992) "Children need to be involved in meaningful projects with adults. It is unrealistic to expect them suddenly to become responsible, participating adult citizens at the age of 16, 18, or 21 without prior exposure to the skills and responsibilities involved. An understanding of democratic participation and the confidence and competence to participate can only be acquired gradually through practice; it cannot be taught as an abstraction. Many western nations think of themselves as having achieved democracy fully, though they teach the principles of democracy in a pedantic way in classrooms which are themselves models of autocracy. This is not acceptable."

“Step Outside for Learning” Threatened in Ontario: Blanding’s Turtle Krishana Johnson-James, Tam O’Shanter “It does take time to help students develop into a community of learners who recognize that being outside the classroom is okay and, dare it be said, fun. All you need is a long term vision and a willingness to achieve it in small steps.”

Making Learning Visible “Pedagogical documentation inserts a new phase of thinking and wondering together between the act of observation and the act of planning a response. Rather than looking for what is known through assessment, pedagogical documentation invites the creativity, surprise and delight of educators who discover the worlds of children.” Dr. Carol Anne Wien, York University

Pedagogical Documentation Tips to Get Started: Creates Shared Understanding Celebrates the Rights of Individual Learners Recognizes Students’ Ownership of Their Learning Actualizes Shared Accountability Provides Voice in Learning for Everyone “Through pedagogical documentation, the roles in education are shifting; what it means to be a learner and an educator are being transformed. Students and teachers alike are demonstrating ownership of and engaging in teaching and learning. Consequently, pedagogical documentation is a vehicle for learning that bridges understanding of children and adults.” Ontario Ministry of Education Capacity Building Series K-12, October 2012

Pedagogical Documentation Questions to ask when studying documentation: What are we trying to understand? What are we asking pedagogical documentation to help us look for? What do we see when we look closely and attentively at the documentation? What questions does this looking raise for us? What do we wonder about? What are our working theories about what we see? What does the documentation reveal about children’s working theories, feelings, attachments and interests? Dr. Carol Anne Wien, York University
