Synopsis

Promoting Reflective Thinking in Teachers 50 Action Strategies by Germaine L. Taggart, Alfred P. Wilson

`This book is very thorough in presenting the purpose and accompanying strategies for instilling reflective practices in educators. I believe the reflective thoughts and questions posed throughout are beneficial for teachers' - Karen Harvey, Santa Clarita Valley Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment (BTSA) This Second Edition integrates the latest research and technology with tried-and-true methods for boosting practitioners' reflective thinking skills. The tasks and tools provided have been specifically designed for facilitators of pre-service and inservice teacher education, training, and development-giving them a timesaving blueprint on how to shape their adult learners into analytical and critical thinkers. Attuned to the challenges surrounding teacher training, this easy-to-use guide outlines straightforward activities and concrete assessments that serve as constructive benchmarks for facilitators and teachers alike. It delivers 50 practical strategies for helping educators move through the levels of reflective thinking - from teacher roles, styles, attributes, and observations through such far-reaching concerns as the moral and ethical considerations of teaching.
