Professional Growth and Self-Reflection in the Teacher Professional Growth & Effectiveness System
I can. . . .
“Policymakers and practitioners who advocate professional development for teachers are not arguing that teaching is of poor quality and must be fixed…Not at all; their advocacy for professional development for teachers reflects the recognition that teaching is so hard that it is never perfect; no matter how good a lesson is, it could always be improved.”
**Danielson, Talk About Teaching (2009)
Teachers rate analyzing and seeking to improve their own teaching as an important factor in their teaching effectiveness (Covino & Iwanicki, 1996)
Effective teachers may reflect on their work formally or informally; for example they may review a day’s work mentally, keep a journal, meet regularly with a mentor or with colleagues, or assess a videotaped recording of their teaching.
(Good & Brophy, 1997; NBPTS, n.d.).
“Reflective teachers portray themselves as students of learning. They are curious about the art and science of teaching and about themselves as effective teachers. They constantly improve lessons, think about how to reach particular children, and seek and try out new approaches in the classroom to better meet the needs of their learners.”-James H. Stronge
