Text (application/pdf)


The purpose of this teaching project was to apply reflective practice methods as defined by John Dewey and Donald Schön in order to investigate my competence as an art teacher. I adapted two models of reflective practice: Model for Clarifying the Reflective Process developed by Stewart B. Shapiro and John Reiff and The Dimensions of Reflection developed by Kenneth M. Zeichner and Daniel P. Liston. From these models I created a model for my reflective practice. Data was recorded daily both in written form and with photographs of student work during a series of ten lessons. Three levels of reflection, Rapid, Repair and Review, were recorded and organized in tables. My research concluded that reflective practice was a valuable tool for my teaching as it revealed proof of my competency through critically grounded reflection. Further research could explore my individual beliefs and philosophy and would lead to action research in art education. Further research could test the usefulness of my reflection model for other practitioners.
