Reflective Teaching. What Am I Doing? Why Am I Doing It This Way? Instructional Strategies Series No. 11.
The purpose of the documents in this series is to provide educators in Saskatchewan with practical and relevant guides to teaching and learning as a means of expanding or refining teaching repertoires. This booklet explores reflection, a form of problem solving in which one tries better to understand and solve problems or concerns of personal importance. The process helps teachers plan a self-guided examination of their own teaching practice in an environment where education and the society which shapes and is shaped by it are constantly changing. The guide includes an introduction and 10 chapters: (1) Reflective Teaching: A Vignette; (2) What Is Reflective Teaching? (3) What Reflective Teaching Is Not; (4) Topics for Reflection; (5) Reflective Teaching: What's in It for Me? (6) Organizers for Reflection; (7) Reflective Questioning; What Might It Look Like? (8) Getting Started; (9) Now That You Have Your Observations (a discussion of individual versus group reflection); and (10) Closing Thoughts...Looking Ahead. The guide concludes with reference and recommended reading lists. (LL)
