Reflecting on Teaching.
Lee, Elizabeth A.
The teacher's role and his or her understanding of it in the learning situation is one variable that needs to be included in any discussion of educational intervention. Bereiter and Scardamalia's (1991) teaching models provide a matrix for organizing teachers' classroom practice. Briefly, each model can be understood as a different view on the part of the teacher of the role of a teacher in learning. The study examined the effects of portfolio use on students' ability to reflect on their own learning in nine elementary classrooms, some of which utilized CSILE as a learning tool. Teachers were interviewed in order to assess which model of teaching informed their practice. The teachers' reflections on learning cluster into two of the teacher models discussed by Bereiter and Scardamalia and furthermore map onto differences in students' ability to reflect on their work via commenting in the portfolios. Appendices contain the interview protocols used in the study. (Author/IAH)
