In her preschool classroom at the Curley School, Laura explores ways to help four boys build knowledge together around a shared interested in constructing marble ramps. Through documentation, Laura makes the boys' processes and products visible so she can revisit them with the boys and colleagues in ways that help to shape their learning process.
