  • Beyond Reflection

    David Schaafsma and Ruth Vinz

    Abstract: What we learn from the contributors to this issue is how to envision the process of understanding teaching as something more than merely "reflecting back" on our various practices. Reflection should be an active response to the present, and to possible future.

  • Reflection and Refraction: A Reflexive Look at an Evolving Model for Methods Instruction

    Carol Pope

    Abstract: All teacher researchers think about reflection as a means of considering their classroom practice. What happens when we expand that notion to think about refraction, as we turn the reflective mirror on its side so that we can understand our practice from all possible angles and venues?

  • "If I Were the Teacher": Situated Performances as Pedagogical Tools for Teacher Preparation

Describes situated performances in detail to illustrate their potential for educative experience. Shows how situated performances can complement current teacher-preparation practices. Includes responses to the article by four educators.
