    Essential Questions:
    • Why look at student work collaboratively?
    • How can examining students' work collaboratively improve the teaching and learning in a school?
    • What conditions and resources are necessary so that educators can regularly examine students' work collaboratively?
    Various protocols have been developed for looking at student work collaboratively. These methods, although used for different purposes, have in common some key principles:
    1. students' work in schools is serious work;
    2. students' work is key data about the life of the school;
    3. the work of children and adults in school should be public.
