The teaching life can be hectic, complex, and even lonely. That’s why so many educators turn to reflective practice to reenergize their commitment to students—and to themselves. Reflective practice counteracts the effects of professional isolation and instills a personal and communal sense of meaning, renewal, and empowerment. This best-selling book offers research-based and practical ideas and strategies for using reflective practice individually, with colleagues, schoolwide, and even district-wide.
