Self- Reflection as a Centering Method for Student Teacher Priorities
All layers of education are increasingly overwhelmed with programmatic and bureaucratic requirements. We have discovered that in order to keep our student teachers from getting bogged down in the considerable details of these matters, they need to be constantly drawn back to the big picture of teaching. Reflective journaling appears to be one method for helping them keep the high priority of actual classroom teaching front and center. This seminar will describe this process.
