Reflection Journal Questions

Reflection is the complex process of carefully thinking about one's experiences that serves as a valuable resource for teachers. There are many different avenues for reflection, one of which is writing. Reflective journal writing offers teachers an opportunity to process their understanding of teaching and learning through the formulation of questions, concepts, and theories related to their experiences. Writing about your experiences for the purpose of deriving meaning and greater understanding of teaching and learning is a powerful strategy. The text offers a wide variety of concepts and ideas that represent the field of educational psychology. The following questions are designed to help teachers reflect on their educational experiences as they relate to the domain of educational psychology. We hope that students will find these questions useful in their preservice classroom observations, in their student teaching experiences, and in their future classroom teaching.
