Building on the insights of his highly acclaimed earlier work, The Skillful Teacher, Stephen D. Brookfield offers a very personal and accessible guide to how faculty at any level and across all disciplines can improve their teaching. Applying the principles of adult learning, Brookfield thoughtfully guides teachers through the processes of becoming critically reflective about teaching, confronting the contradictions involved in creating democratic classrooms and using critical reflection as a tool for ongoing personal and professional development.Using numerous examples, Brookfield describes what critical reflection is and why it is so important. He tells how teachers can reframe their teaching by viewing their practice through four distinctive lenses: their autobiographies as teachers and learners, their students' eyes, their colleagues' perceptions, and theoretical literature. He includes specific advice on using practical approaches to critical reflection such as teaching diaries, role model profiles, participant learning portfolios, structured critical conversation. the Critical Incident Classroom Questionnaire, the Good Practices Audit, and more. He explains how the literature of educational research and philosophy can be used as an aid to, rather than an inhibitor of, critical reflection. And he discusses how to create a campus culture that supports critically reflective teaching.

Ph. W. JACKSON es uno de los primeros investigadores que verdaderamente llega a prestar una gran atención a los comentarios que realizan los profesores y profesoras acerca de su propio trabajo como profesionales y a todo lo que sucede en realidad en el interior de las aulas. Esto le permite advertir que la enseñanza es una actividad mucho más compleja de lo que la mayoría de las personas acostumbran a pensar. Su preocupación fundamental radica en comprender y describir los procesos mentales y las concepciones implícitas que poseen los docentes acerca de qué es la enseñanza. El autor, en esta obra ciertamente innovadora y de gran vigencia, refleja lo que día a día acontece en el interior de los centros escolares. Para ello, realiza investigaciones de tipo etnográfico en las que abundan las observaciones intensivas de las actividades e interacciones de alumnado y profesorado y la realización de numerosas entrevistas y discusiones con los participantes. Este trabajo supone uno de los hitos que marca el inicio de las investigaciones etnográficas o cualitativas en el ámbito educativo. Entre las aportaciones más decisivas de JACKSON debemos destacar que es él quien por primera vez utiliza el concepto «currículum oculto», término que hace referencia al significado latente de los contenidos, tareas e interacciones escolares, y quien establece la distinción entre las fases preactiva e interactiva de la enseñanza. La importancia de este libro queda constatada al ser una de las obras que más se citan en todos los trabajos publicados en los últimos años; es una referencia obligada para toda persona que se interese por la práctica escolar.

The purpose of this book is to help teacher education students and experienced teachers to develop not only an understanding of the nature of "reflective practice" but also the attitudes and skills that such an approach to teaching requires. Case studies illustrate many difficult experiences teachers encounter; each chapter begins with one or more case studies that are analyzed and discussed in terms of the chapter's main focus. The volume is organized into seven chapters, of which the first provides an organizing framework for the book and offers a broad overview of the nature and purposes of "reflective practice" as applied to the classroom teacher, an explanation of how reflective practice differs from "good teaching," and an indication of what is entailed in the process of becoming a reflective practitioner. Chapters 2 through 4 offer, respectively, a general discussion of the role of inquiry in reflective practice, an extended discussion of the nature, purposes, and objectives of transformational curricula and instruction, and an examination of issues of leadership and followership in the school context. Chapter 5 addresses the relationship between the school and the community; chapter 6 gives a broad overview of the role of professional ethics in reflective practice; and finally, chapter 7 offers some suggested activities to help individuals become more reflective and analytic professionals. (Contains approximately 140 references.) (LL)

To accommodate the evolution of teacher education programs, this text was developed for two groups: 1) those serving as interns or student teachers as they complete traditional teacher education programs and 2) new in-service teachers who are part of an alternative certification program.

The authors also aim to promote a high level of engagement and interaction with the program. TEACHING FOR STUDENT LEARNING retains the reader-friendly style and convenient format of the best-selling Ryan and Cooper texts. Its three-hole punched and perforated pages--along with its 25 brief, to-the-point chapters (modules)--make it easy for busy teachers to quickly find, understand, and use key information related to their most pressing needs. Accompanying TeachSource Video Cases, available in the Education Media Library, are directly tied to the text and allow students to see text concepts brought to life in real classrooms.

Learning to read is one of the most important life skills teachers can help a child develop. Teaching reading is a vital part of a career in the classroom and engaging with the range of different learning styles children have is a real challenge.

Margaret Perkins helps students meet these challenges to become a confident, reflective teacher of reading by providing: * An in-depth explanation of phonics teaching alongside other teaching approaches, empowering trainees to choose the right approach for each individual child *Key research findings so students can apply the latest thinking to their teaching practice *School-based activities and independent learning tasks to help apply theory to practice, and develop teaching skills through self-reflection *Classroom scenarios of teacher-child interactions that demonstrate how children learn and respond to different teaching strategies.

This book looks at critical reflection as a key skill for all teachers in further education (FE) and an important part of the new Professional Standards. In particular the text explores the key themes of self-awareness, planning, managing behaviour and CPD in relation to reflective practice to demonstrate how it can support those areas of teaching that most often cause concern. The limitations and benefits of reflection are analysed and action research is identified as an important facet in developing professional reflective practice which can in turn enhance both the personal and professional life of FE teachers.
