Pedagogical narration is a way of recording ordinary moments of
children's play through photos, video, or transcription. Inspired
by Reggio Emilia's call to look at documentation as a valuable tool
for making learning more visible, pedagogical narration offers an
opportunity to move beyond checklists and quick answers to a more
complex understanding of how children learn through play, and how
teachers might facilitate and support that learning in innovative
Many early childhood educators are familiar with pedagogical
narration, but are less clear on how to integrate it into their
teaching or practice. This book is designed to help instructors do
just that, and to inspire them and their students with new ideas.
The book includes both a rationale for the need to critically
reflect on early-years education and an outline of the process for
doing pedagogical narration in the classroom. It includes stories
the authors have collected and discussions of how to use these
stories to render a more complex understanding of how children
learn. The goal of this cutting-edge work is to create
possibilities for alternative childhood pedagogies and to
revitalize early childhood education and practice.
