An Introduction to Standards-Based Reflective Practice for Middle and High School Teaching
Spalding, Elizabeth; Garcia, Jesus; Braun, Joseph A., Jr.
Teachers College Press
This easy-to-use, introductory guide to teaching in contemporary middle and high schools provides teachers with the tools to become reflective practitioners. It shows pre- and inservice teachers how to use standards to choose instructional materials and methods that are appropriate with particular students, at a particular time, in a particular setting, for a particular purpose. While the authors are specialists in English and social studies, this resource is appropriate for aspiring middle and high school teachers of any subject. With a personal voice that will appeal to readers, this book: (1) Links directly to the most recent version of standards for beginning teachers published by the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO); (2) Illustrates how teachers can be reflective about, rather than reactive to, standards; (3) Features an autobiographical approach to help readers understand how prior educational experiences may shape their future teaching; and (4) Contains numerous reflective vignettes by practicing teachers.
