Blue geometric cover of Angela Stockman's book, the writing teacher's guide to pedagoical documentation

I’m excited to announce the release of my new book, The Writing Teacher’s Guide to Pedagogical Documentation (Routledge, 2024). This book offers a peek into the practices I used to compose all of my other books, as well as introductions to friends in education whose own learning stories I value much.

Angelique Thompson and Kenisha Bynoe are two of those educators, and they’re celebrating a book birthday, too. Early reading coaches for the Toronto District School Board, Kenisha is also a French Immersion educator and Angelique is an Additional Qualifications instructor. Their gorgeous book, The Gift of Playful Learning, was recently released. In this week’s newsletter, I’m explaining why this book is my favorite book on loose parts play and pedagogical documentation. Have a peek, and sign up to win a copy of your own. You’ll also find a 20% discount coupon for my new title there and an invitation to join my summer book club, too.

Happy spring, all!

So grateful for you.


“We go down too many rabbit holes when discussing assessment, tests, data, and evidence.  Angela Stockman provides a powerful perspective focusing on interpreting the myriad of information that teachers, leaders and students encounter in every lesson. The book introduces the concept of documentation, which involves investigating the people, places, processes, practices, and products of teaching and learning. Through this approach, educators are encouraged to triangulate, deduce, induce, and find meaning, ultimately taking purposeful actions in their teaching journey. This book serves as a valuable gift, empowering teachers with a fresh perspective and the ability to make a significant impact on their students’ learning experiences.”
