Becoming A Reflective Educator: How To Build a Culture of Inquiry in the Schools / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- SAGE Publications
This book is designed to help teachers understand and develop the 'reflective practice' skills that will help them to both survive and develop professionally in today's schools. The authors believe that the extra demands that teachers face today demand more than intuition, instinctive reaction or a prepackaged set of techniques. Teachers must reflect on what is taking place, correctly perceive what the options are in a critical and analytical way and make choices grounded in rational, conscious decision making to improve practice.
Using real-life case studies, the book illustrates the three levels of reflective practice: reflection in practice, reflection on practice and reflection for practice.
