Tale of Two Talents: How Two Early Childhood Teacher Educators Use Peer-Reflection to Examine Their Practices
Thompson, Josh; Stryker, Aggie
Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education, v31 n2 p185-199 2010
How do college professors prepare for class? Teachers often approach the lesson planning process differently. Some, though quite different in their methods, come out with remarkably similar results. Two highly effective teachers engaged each other in peer-reflection as they explored their own methods of lesson preparation. As they conferred with one another, they recognized similarities and examined their differences. They tell their story here, describing how they grew through sharing tales, comparing their talents, and contrasting their ideas about lesson planning. Their similarities on seven attributes of lesson preparation were strong; however, on seven facets they differed. The degree of that contrast is of great interest here. (Contains 2 figures and 3 tables.)
