Teachers College Press, Jan 1, 2003 - Education - 126 pages
Featuring engaging narratives, this how-to book delves into reflection as a concept and provides specific, replicable tools for professional practice. Each chapter draws on a particular school situation demonstrating the value of teacher reflection and describing the nuts and bolts of the process, including protocols for handling many different circumstances. Written by public school teachers who offer lessons learned and strategies that work, this volume: provides insights to help teachers build reflective practice with their students, including protocols for classroom problem solving; presents scenarios for individual students, their parents, and teachers to talk together about a student's performance, including protocols for conducting family meetings; shows what can happen when teachers come together to share stories of their daily lives, including protocols for conducting a focus group; and offers advice for reflecting alone and with a group, including protocols for both types of reflection.
