On 16 feb, 2011 we met with the literacy leaders and revisited our understandings about CLLC and engaging in Participatory Action Research. We had a strong focus on reflection. We explored the Reflective Thinking Pyramid, what makes effective Professional Learning and options for keeping a reflective journal. We also discussed the use of evidence, how we reflect on this evidence and keeping the focus on student learning.
A key part of CLLC is that we build this learning community and engage in reflective thinking. As part of this we will:
- question our practices based on increased pedagogical knowledge and skills
- reflect on our context so that this reflection leads to better teaching
- through our reflection we are able to defend our practices and articulate their relevance to improved student learning
I look forward to continuing this journey with you.
