Documentation takes the form of a 20 minute video edited into three sections. Section one shows how the lesson is introduced. Section two records students engaged in inquiry learning. Finally, section three records the lesson's closure, The analysis focuses on the available evidence from the video; specifically, how the candidate's actions (or inaction's) resulted in student learning. The portfolio entry is limited to 12 pages.
