Classroom Reflections: Using Drawn Images of Critical Incidents for Social Construction of Reflective Practice
Armstrong, Dorothy Ciner; Hipp, Sally
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (San Francisco, CA, 2006)
This research documented an innovative technique called Classroom Reflections (CR) that could successfully develop teacher candidates (TCs) abilities as reflective practitioners. Elementary and secondary TCs used their drawing of a critical incident first to analyze their own practice and then with others to construct deeper meaning. TCs were in a yearlong preparation program for returning adults in which they did courses and field concurrently. Data for two years will be reported. Raters determined that about 80% of the TCs' analyses demonstrated reflection and application theory to their practice. The TCs reported that CR was a good way for them to examine their practice, gain multiple perspectives, and collaborate with others. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
