The Art and Science of Play | Psychology Today.

If we know that play is children’s work, how do we make that visible to others?  In making it visible, does it give play the “respect” it deserves?  Do parents understand how important this is?  Do they see the connection to further learning? If not, what can you do about it?

Making Mothers Visible – San Francisco – YouTube.  What does it say about us as a culture to make someone visible?  How can we as educators, work to make children visible to our culture?  How can this video inspire us?

Educators from the Preschools in Reggio Emilia speak on their experiences with documentation.  I plan on using this video for new teachers as well as those more experienced to further our understanding of the process in documentation.
