Part 2: A summary of learning that provides an assessment of what you have learned from the process of reflecting on selected critical incidents, and which details what the implications of this might be for your continuing professional development (500 words); Task details and InstructionsAs you begin your teaching practice you will be given four focal areas to consider during your teaching and observations; professionalism,
expectations, behaviour, and paradigms of pedagogy. At specific points in your placement you will be asked to complete up to 400 words describing your background, observations and/or experiences in these areas in reference to a critical incident of practice.
A critical incident is a moment or collection of moments that prompts you to notice more and think critically about your practice.
The aim is to step back from each significant moment, reflect on your own assumptions related to what has happened and consider implications for personal and professional development.
This requires you to think more carefully about your work in school, and to connect this to relevant academic literature. Following taught sessions, group discussions, and individual feedback from your tutor you will be able to critically reflect on your initial observations and situate them within the wider literatures of education.
This will allow you to extend your writing for each incident up to the wordcount of 750 words.Analysis of each critical incident enables you to think about what you can do differently. In writing up your four critical incidents you might consider:•
A brief description of what happened or what have you noticed•
Analyse: Can you explain of why this event occurred, and why it is important?
•Analyse: Why you have come to this particular explanation and not another; might there be an alternative explanation for the event or experience witnessed? •
How does it connect to wider reading and research?•
How has your prior experience or current training impacted on what you have learned? What are the implications of your learning for your future professional development?
•How has (or might) your practice and its impact on young people be enhanced or changed as a result of your analysis?
The final 500 word summary of learning should provide an assessment of what you have learned from the process of reflecting on the selected critical incidents. Therefore you might summarise:•
How your practice has been informed or altered by the process of reflecting on the specific critical incidents.
•How this has effected the way you think about teaching and learning.
•What the implications of this might be for your future practice
