Teaching Resistant Novice Educators to Be Critically Reflective
Holloway, Susan M.; Gouthro, Patricia A.
Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, v32 n1 p29-41 Feb 2011
Drawing upon our experience as university faculty in teaching novice educators, we explore the issue of resistance from students around learning that entails critical reflection. By novice educators, we refer to pre-service teacher candidates and graduate students in Education faculties, particularly graduate students in adult education/lifelong learning programs, who often do not have prior Education degrees or extensive experience as educators. We believe novice educators should be taught to be critically reflective, regardless of whether they teach in schools, government, the not-for-profit sector, or business sector.
