Question: Do teachers reflect on their teaching?
Answer: “Found that teachers rarely distanced themselves from daily routines to reflect upon their teaching.” FM Owen. 1990. P. 253.
Comment: If there is one thing that I regret about my teaching career, it is that I failed to take the time to reflect on my lessons in secondary English. Teacher pre-service programs should emphasize this practice. It would have made me a much better teacher. Sort of like what I am doing now with my blogs. For most articles that I summarize, I comment or reflect on the ideas presented. These comments are as significant to me as the ideas themselves. They tell me what I would do with the idea in my classroom. RayS.
