More on Reflective Teaching

reflectionI'm a big fan of reflective teaching and use it extensively in my teacher training programs. Especially reflective writing / journal writing. There is something about the act of writing in this way, that makes one intimate with oneself (as Schon, the grandfather of this subject once put it). It gets one growing as a teacher and I still look at my teaching journal from my first year teaching and learn a lot!

In ELT, you can't go wrong visiting some of Thomas Farrell's books on the subject. He's a great "teacher's teacher" and I've attached a review by David Nunan about his latest, "Reflective Teaching Practice: From Research to Practice (see below). He's a wonderful writer/speaker on the subject. If you get the chance to hear him speak - do so. He'll be in Seoul for the International Kotesol conference this fall.

Reflective Teaching Practice review Nunan

Also, over the last year, I've compiled this ebook - The Tao of Teaching. It sprung up through a forum conversation and just grew and grew.

Presently, I'm editing it and will make it into a reflective journal, using the passages as a prompt, along with a nice quote about learning/teaching/education for reflective writing. A journal professors/teachers can use with practicing or inservice teachers.

Do you have any suggestions for this? What questions do you think teachers should ask themselves and write about?
