Reflecting with Students on My Daily Teaching: Three Case Studies of a Post-Class Laboratory.
Lighthall, Frederick F.
This paper presents three case studies of collaborations with student teachers in a college course on the Psychology of Teaching in which they reflected after class on class events. The paper traces the development of the reflective laboratories through the three cases, which illustrate the process and content of collaborative reflection. The course was primarily for students enrolled in two teacher education programs for the Master of Arts in Teaching and Master of Science in Teaching. Class discussions focused on required readings, on the students' own narratives of their practice teaching experiences, and on connections between texts and experiences. After looking at the case studies, the paper presents four comments from the professor's experience. The comments examine: the professor's reflections on his beliefs; the professor's re-reading of his case narratives; the professor's reflection on those reflections; and disciplined reflection on practice.
