Issues in Education: Epistemology, Phenomenology, and Reflection--A "Stop, Look, and Listen" for Educators
Fite, Kathleen
Childhood Education, v88 n3 p189-190 2012
Childhood learning is full of easy-to-remember directions. Recall such advice as "Stop, look, and listen" before one crosses the street and "Stop, drop, and roll" if one's clothes catch on fire. These sayings are clear and concise with specific instruction about what to do in a critical situation. As a teacher educator who has been in the field for over 40 years, the author finds herself wishing for something equally simple to remember (without minimizing the complex nature of teaching and learning) that could guide her students toward becoming more effective educators. This article provides emerging and seasoned educators with three easy-to-remember keys to thoughtful teaching: epistemology, phenomenology, and reflection.
