Abstract:

Reflective practice is now seen as a major component of teacher education and
professional development programs worldwide. This book is one of the first to
show how this technique can be embraced by language teachers. It makes sense
that for those whose job it is to teach writing, a good way to be reflective
is by writing regularly about their work. Reflective Writing for Language
Teachersshows language teachers how they can use writing as a way to subject
their beliefs and practices to critical reflection and offers them a means of
using this type of reflective practice for professional development purposes.

When language teachers write about various facets of their work over a period
of time, and then read over their entries looking for patterns, that is,
seeing their own thoughts, they may uncover aspects of their practice that
they had not realized before beginning to write reflectively. Reflective
writing develops language teachers’ understanding of their practice and also
leads to a clarification of the values and assumptions that underlie those
practices.

Reflective Writing for Language Teachers explores the impact of regular
writing as a reflective tool for teachers of English as a second language,
other language teachers, and classroom English or language arts teachers. The
book begins with a discussion on professional development and then outlines
what reflective practice involves. It also addresses such issues as
self-reflection, self-discovery through narrative reflective writing, the
reflective journal, reflecting on the first and the later years of teaching,
reflecting with the aid of teacher development groups, and reflecting for
action.
