This past week I had several opportunities to observe some of my sweet teachers and post conference with them about the lessons. I love talking with teachers about teaching and learning. The teachers at my school are young and open. They are honest and curious. I love that! How blessed the children are to have these people.
I am not sure if reflection is a natural process for everyone or maybe it dulls as we grow older. This thought made me ponder the following thoughts.
I am wondering what reflective questions you ask yourself in your teaching. What is the inner conversation that happens in your mind as you plan, teach, consider student work, and replan? Is your inner conversation natural or did you have to develop it? Is it your own or does it follow a program? What makes you reflective? What prohibits reflection in your school? How do we create a culture where reflection is valued?
