Reflective Teaching

An essential aspect in teaching is the continual process of reflection. Reflective teaching is a metacognitive strategy that looks at actions in the classroom, the reasons behinds them, and the results. It is a continual process of self-observation and self-evaluation. By gathering information about what happens in the classroom, and by analyzing and evaluating this information, the practices and underlying beliefs and able to be analyzed and explored. The results are constant adjustments and advances in teaching practices, leading towards results that are more effective. When the classroom becomes a laboratory, the teacher is able to expand on teaching theory and improve teaching practice.
