What is your advice about? Reflection

1: Reflection is a crucial part of teaching. Doing it properly WILL have an impact.

2: Write a reflection at least fortnightly; it down will force you to think critically. Your best reflections may take place in the car or in the shower; try to write these down.

3: Consider keeping a reflective journal that you can go back over at the end of a term/year. Think about what’s changed, what hasn’t, and what still needs to.

4: You’ll be time poor as a teacher, but investing time in reflection can save you time in other areas.

5: There’s no right way to reflect. What went well & why, what didn’t & why are starting points but there’s more to consider as you develop your teaching & ability to reflect.
