Thinking deeply about strange and conflict-ridden incidents in the classroom as a way to develop our reflective practice.
This story-as-reflection workshop is geared toward teachers at any stage of their careers who want to talk over how to use reflection to dig deeper into who we are in the classroom, and how our educational values get expressed in the minute-to-minute decisions we make. The goal is mostly to encourage and support each other’s personal reflections on our classrooms for the purpose of improving our practice, getting closer to students, and finding a perspective with which to deal with stuff that just doesn’t make sense. There is the option for participants to keep meeting during the summer and school year. A set of readings and reflection guidelines will be provided, but participants are also encouraged to contribute their own materials to share with others.
