Joffe, Wendy S.
Roeper Review, v23 n4 p219-26 Jun 2001
This case study describes how a novice teacher of the gifted moves from observation toward the development of responsive pedagogy. Interviews gathered information on the teacher's perceptions regarding her students' characteristics, her instructional strategies, and her decision making. Analysis suggests a cognitive map of a three-part process by which a beginning teacher uses observation to assist in developing pedagogy. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
