Reflective Practice: Creating Professional Development Practices that Support the Teacher as Researcher
This professional development initiative will focus on how teachers are reflective in their practice with children AND within and among all of the adults who work with the children. It will also focus on how to invite family and community collaboration in reflective practice. This initiative will be an interactive experience where participants will engage in dialogue and look for ideas embedded in the “Wonder of Learning” related to reflective practice and where participants will create learning opportunities based on children’s interests and ideas. This is an opportunity for New Mexicans to learn from others how to engage in reflective practice for deepening their work with children and families as well as how to enhance assessment practices and to share how we are engaging in reflective practice. Presentations will be given by Reggio-inspired teachers from Arizona, Chicago, Illinois, Missouri, California and New Mexico.
