The Reflective Educator
A Collaborative Approach to Building Teachers' Capacity DVD
The Reflective Educator profiles teachers working with administrators and coaches to take charge of their professional growth and move along the path to excellence by becoming reflective practitioners.
Capacity building is the focus of Pete Hall and Alisa Simeral's work, and their strategies are becoming the model for instructional coaching in schools across the country.
This video takes an in-depth look at a school where three teachers are taking steps to grow as reflective practitioners with the help of Hall and Simeral's strategies. We see them working in partnership with their administrator and instructional coach to make use of Hall and Simeral's Reflective Cycle and the Continuum of Self-Reflection tools. Each teacher is at a different stage on the continuum, and by observing their practice, we'll learn about specific strategies for growth in each stage.
We'll also observe the key role administrators and coaches play in building teacher's capacity for success. We'll see them identifying and nurturing their teachers' strengths to help them reach new levels of professional success and satisfaction.
The Reflective Educator shows that teachers are a school's most essential strength. As their capacity for success increases, so does their ability to positively affect the students they guide.
