Question and answer
Q: explain the importance of continually improving knowledge and practice
A: I believe that it important for teachers to continually reflect upon their professional knowledge and practice and refine their knowledge of pedagogy and teaching strategies. [ I believe that keeping a journal and writing down reflections of daily teaching is an effective way to keep a record of all the teaching experiences and observations taking place every day. With so much happening every
day within the classroom environment, it is so easy to forget about the little things that go on. Therefore, by writing down thoughts and reflections, teachers will have a record of what is happening. This will be beneficial for future references. Reflecting on my own teaching practices will help me further assist my students’ learning as I gain a deeper insight into my own teaching practices (McInerney & McInerney, 2006, p. 27). My students are not the only people who are learning within the school community- I myself am also continuously learning and thinking, which will be a lifelong process (McInerney & McInerney, 2006, p. 27). Reflecting on my own teaching practices will also allow me to take full responsibility of my learning curve and professional development (Ewing et al, 2003, p. 160). I have written a critical reflection on three sequential lessons which I implemented in my previous practicum last year. I have also completed a reflection portfolio from my Professional 1 experience, which I still find some information and observations relevant til today. During my previous practicum, I have also written a paragraph of reflection on each of my lesson. I will engage in more collegial professional development. My role as a member of the professional team is to be supportive and encouraging, and to lend a helping hand to all my work colleagues when needed. I will continually develop professionally and independently, and I will take on board all the advice and critical feedback to further my development and teaching skills. ]
