Reflective Inquiry Portfolios: A Design for Development and Assessment of Teaching and Supervision Skills.
Impey, William D.; McHaney, Jane H.
To achieve the goal of helping students acquire the pedagogical knowledge, skills, and dispositions required for continuous professional development as well as successful entry into the profession, the development of reflective inquiry and decision-making skills has emerged as the focus of a growing number of teacher education programs. This paper provides a systematic design for the implementation of effective methods and materials for the instruction and assessment of student performance as implemented in an undergraduate program in secondary education and a graduate program in elementary education. The methods and materials used for instruction and evaluation in these programs are presented in the form of portfolios which illustrate students' written and videotaped responses to questions and tasks designed to engage them in the reflective processes of observing, analyzing, and evaluating their performance of teaching and clinical supervision roles. The main body of the document provides reflective inquiry portfolio materials to be utilized for the design and development of teaching and supervisory skills. The evaluation instrument is included.
