Beginning the journey: supporting reflection in early field experiences
Abstract:Critical incident analysis shows promise as a strategy for supporting a social justice orientation to reflection on teaching during early field experiences. This paper examines formal field reports written by students in pre-education courses at a small, private, liberal arts university. These reports illustrate how students, through the analysis of critical incidents, were able to move beyond merely describing what they observed to a deeper level investigation of the social implications of educational practices.
