Description

Over the past ten years, the term reflective practice has become imbedded in the language of education, as a growing number of districts adopt the principals of reflective practice to create effective schools. The Second Edition of Reflective Practice for Educators stresses the need for effective implementation of new programmes in order to provide an opportunity to explore the ways of thinking, seeing, and believing that affect what we do and how we do it. Without this consciousness, even the best programme will not be sustained in the face of continual demand for newer and better solutions. The authors believe that the most enduring changes will take place in schools as teachers, administrators, and parents ponder how students learn and how the adults responsible for their learning can best support them. The most successful schools in creating change are those functioning as learning organizations.

Author Biography

Karen F. Osterman is currently Professor and Chairperson in the Department of Foundations, Leadership, and Policy Studies at Hofstra University. She received her BA from Emmanuel College, an MPIA at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, and a PhD from Washington University. Her teaching and research focus broadly on motivation in a social context with particular emphasis on organiza-tional structures and processes that affect the workplace behavior of adults and students. Her work has appeared in the Journal of Management Science, Journal of School Public Relations, Journal of School Leadership, Education and Urban Society, Newsday, Phi Delta Kappan, Review of Educational Research, and Urban Education. Recent work explores the way that school and classroom policies and practices affect the quality of peer relationships, bullying, student violence, and disengagement from learning. Robert B. Kottkamp is Professor Emeritus, Department of Foundations, Leadership and Policy Studies, Hofstra University. He received his BA from DePauw University and both MAEd and PhD from Washington University. Dr. Kottkamp has coauthored five books, the latest being, Reflective Practice for Educators: Professional Development to Improve Student Learning (2nd Edition) with Karen F. Osterman. His chapter with Edith A. Rusch, The Landscape of Scholarship on the Education of School Leaders, 1985-2006, is forthcoming in the Handbook of Research on Leadership Preparation. He maintains a keen interest in the continuing development of the Let Me Learn Process(R) and in researching its processes and effects. Professor Kottkamp is fortunate to have chaired the doctoral research of coauthors, Dr. Chris Johnston and Dr. Bonnie Dawkins; creating this book together as peers has been a wonderfully fulfilling learning experience.
