The Art of Awareness

by Deb Curtis and Margie Carter

Recommended by ONCDC


One of the best resources out there for teachers to develop their documentation and observation practices. Margie and Deb are early childhood heros that are able to articulate so well how to move towards reflective teaching. This is a book you want to buy, have on the shelf, and you will reference again and again.

Key Points:

  • Observation protocols
  • Playful ways to deepen learning
  • Stories from other teachers


  • It is a little long, don’t let that deter you!
