Trainee teachers are expected to demonstrate reflective practice in many ways throughout their course. Unlike other texts, this book takes a focused look at what primary trainees need to know and offers specific and details guidance on how to be meaningfully reflective in learning and teaching. Examining reflection as a tool for both teachers and children, this text considers how teachers can encourage the children they teach to be reflective in their own learning and how this can improve learning and teaching. Chapters on lesson study and reflective journals offer practical guidance, and a chapter on using children's voice as a tool for reflection explores this popular topical theme. Case studies and activities are included to help the reader relate theory to practice and all chapters are linked to the 2012 Teachers' Standards. About the Transforming Primary QTS series This series reflects the new creative way schools are begining to teach, taking a fresh approach to supporting trainees as they work towards primary QTS. Titles provide fully up to date resources focused on teaching a more integrated and inclusive curriculum, and texts draw out meaningful and explicit cross curricular links.

This volume outlines the assumptions and beliefs that distinguish the concept of the reflective teacher from the view of the teacher as passive and a mere technician -- a view that teacher education programs and schools have historically promoted. The authors demonstrate how various conceptions of reflective teaching differ from one another. They believe that it is only through teachers' reflections on their own teaching that they become more skilled, more capable, and in general better teachers. This is the first volume in the "Reflective Teaching and the Social Conditions of Schooling" series. The major goal of both this book and of all of the volumes to follow in this series is to help teachers explore and define their own positions with regard to the topics and issues at hand within the context of the aims of education in a democratic society.

THIS IS THE SERIES BLURB...LIST ALL BOOKS TOGETHER:Continuum Studies in Reflective Practice and Research is a new series of textbooks aimed at teaching students. As with Andrew Pollard's books, they use the idiom of reflective teaching. In other words, they avoids the two extreme views about learning to teach, namely that it is best done simply through acquiring practical "tricks of the trade" without any theory or that it is best done applying sytematized, objective theory. The distinctive feature of relective teaching is that it encourages practitioners to develop by continually inter-relating theory and research findings to their own practice, situation and style.These comprehensive textbooks provide an accessible guide to all those who are new to teaching in secondary schools. Covering all aspects of job, from planning through to teaching and assessment, the authors provide constructive, accessible and, above all, practical advice to help subject teachers become more effective in their work.

Now in its second edition, Teaching and Learning through Reflective Practice is a practical guide to enable all those involved in educational activities to learn through the practices of reflection. The book highlights the power that those responsible for teaching and learning have to appraise, understand and positively transform their teaching. Seeing the teacher as a reflective learner, the book emphasises a strengths-based approach in which positivity, resilience, optimism and high performance can help invigorate teaching, enhance learning and allow the teacher to reach their full potential. This approach busts the myth that reflection on problems and deficits is the only way to better performance. The approach of this new edition is an ‘appreciative’ one. At its heart is the exploration and illustration of four reflective questions: What’s working well? What needs changing? What are we learning? Where do we go from here? With examples drawn from UK primary teacher education, the book reveals how appreciative reflective conversations can be initiated and sustained. It also sets out a range of practical processes for amplifying success. This book will be a must have for undergraduate and PGCE students on initial teacher training programmes. It will also interest practising teachers, teacher educators and those on continuing professional development courses.

This book is designed to help teachers understand and develop the `reflective practice' skills that will help them to both survive and develop professionally in today's schools. The authors believe that the extra demands that teachers face today demand more than intuition, instinctive reaction or a prepackaged set of techniques. Teachers must reflect on what is taking place, correctly perceive what the options are in a critical and analytical way and make choices grounded in rational, conscious decision making to improve practice. Using real-life case studies, the book illustrates the three levels of reflective practice: reflection in practice, reflection on practice and reflection for practice.

This book investigates the ways in which pre-service teachers develop and articulate their professional knowledge by presenting their reflections on contemporary issues and topics they have explored during their own teaching practicums. It uses reflective practice to connect pre-service teachers’ personal backgrounds with their placement experience concerning a self-selected topic, including teacher educators’ reflections on the pre-service teachers’ reports on these placement topics. By illustrating the broad range of issues encountered by pre-service teachers, sharing multiple perspectives on the complexity of classroom practice, and demonstrating the importance of reflective practice, it also provides a valuable mentoring framework. Moreover, the book studies how examining pre-service teachers’ life experience can facilitate in-depth understanding, specifically in the context of pre-service teachers’ reflections on their own practices in different educational settings. In short, the book helps current and prospective pre-service teachers and teacher educators get to know their students and themselves better using reflective practice.

This is the second volume in the "Reflective Teaching and the Social Conditions of Schooling" series. Reflection in the area of culture and teaching necessarily takes teachers on both an introspective journey and an examination of the social conditions of schooling. There is a need to know not only what they believe but also what schools do. It has long been charged that our educational system privileges some and disenfranchises others. Schools are not the equitable institutions that one would hope them to be--a feature of schooling and one that deserves a great deal more attention. This work facilitates an examination of its readers' own beliefs, acquaints them with the sentiments and arguments of others, and encourages them to look further into the social conditions of schooling.

An essential text helping student teachers, classroom teachers at all stages in their careers, school mentors and teacher educators develop their effectiveness by analysing and improving their practice in the light of a deeper understanding of the professional Standards. The new format of the Teachers’ Standards means it is now necessary to develop shared understandings about, for example, what constitutes high expectations or good progress. Rather than making simple judgements about discrete skills or fragments of knowledge, a more holistic, rounded vision of teaching and learning is required. Each aspect of the Standards is dealt with in a chapter of its own, where the central topic is presented as both complex and contested in a way that invites readers to formulate their own interpretations. The approach used accentuates the importance of reflection as a key professional attribute and readers are encouraged to reflect on their own experiences and on their responses to case studies and quotations as a means of helping them to develop their understandings.
