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.

This essential text helps 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 Teachers’ Standards. 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 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. This new edition takes account of the current educational context, with an emphasis on evidence-based practice, and includes extension tasks to address M level demands, fully revised and updated chapters on SEND and assessment, and a completely new final chapter highlighting CPD and appraisal for serving teachers.
