Displays and Documentation

​In a typical year, parents at EMJ are able to be in the school for different events, and see the work that students are engaging in displayed in different ways throughout the building.  The displays that we create within the school are a progression of student learning, and document the learning journey through the eyes of our students.
Our hallway boards are intentionally different from the ones many of us saw when we went to school. Our hallway documentation boards are a deliberate part of our focus on ensuring learning is at the heart of all we do at EMJ.
  Teachers and students have been making their learning visible through classroom blogs, classroom bulletin boards and on the documentation boards in our school hallways. Our digital blogs are written by teachers as a way to share the learning outcomes and tasks with parents so that you are able to talk with your child about what they have been learning at school. 
Inside classrooms, the displays aim to decorate the space with each class member's work and/or to act as a learning aid that students can refer to during classroom discussions.
EMJ's documentation boards are meant to be different from the displays we grew up with. These boards make the process of learning visible for our learning community. Many of the questions that students were asking and the 'aha' moments when they answered their own questions are documented through this process. The learning outcomes are directly tied to curriculum, and multiple perspectives are represented to show both the process and products of learning.
