Reflective Practice in Action: 80 Reflection Breaks for Busy Teachers

No matter how busy your schedule, you can renew and refresh your professional growth by using these reflection breaks!   

Strongly believing that educators should always reflect on their day′s work, teacher and writer Thomas S. C. Farrell designed this new book with busy teachers in mind. The 80 reflection breaks featured can be used as individual discussion starters or as part of a comprehensive professional growth plan that is perfect for teachers at all levels. Farrell makes focusing on reflective practice easy by allowing readers to browse through the complete selection of reflective breaks in the table of contents to find their areas of interest and concern.

Each reflection break is set within a context of theory, practice, and strategies in the following areas:

  • Spicing up "routine teaching" and reflection after each class
  • Conducting action research and creating a portfolio
  • Reflecting individually or in groups and setting up guidelines for group reflection
  • Communicating and reflecting effectively and devoting enough time to reflection

Reflective Practice in Action has a versatile format, inviting educators to reflect on their past actions in the classroom, and offering practical suggestions to improve and energize their professional growth, teaching methods, and classroom strategies.
