Descriptive Inquiry: Cultivating Practical Wisdom with Teachers
Furman, Cara
Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, v24 n5 p559-570 2018
Teaching is a complex task that requires that the teacher be skilled at responding effectively and ethically to unexpected situations. Many have linked a teacher's facility in the classroom to Aristotle's concept of phronesis, translated in this paper as practical wisdom. While the relationship between practical wisdom and teaching has gotten attention, more concrete ways of cultivating practical wisdom in teachers is needed. In this paper, I highlight how a particular practice, descriptive review, can help teachers develop practical wisdom.
