What is documentation? Knowing what is documentation is the first stage of understanding the process. Katz and Chard offer this explanation: “Documentation typically includes samples of a child’s work at several different stages of completion: photographs showing work in prog- ress; comments written by the teacher or other adults working with the children; transcriptions of children’s discussions, comments, and explana- tions of intentions about the activity; and comments made by parents” (1996, 2).
