Sample text

Simply to expect teachers to become reflective practitioners (Schon 1983) is to omit any detailed specification of how methodological competence as a reflective practitioner is to be developed. It is often assumed that reflection is a solitary and private process, facilitated by a mentor and aided by the keeping of a diary, journal or log. But this alone is inadequate to support the teacher in meeting the pressures associated with developing an inclusive school or an inclusive society. Although the classroom is an important site for discursive action in the struggle for greater educational equity and social justice, research from other sources can provide additional evidence for the development of the action research.

The research evidence that results from the monitoring and recording of practice ‘as it happens’ reveals aspects of the practice that are often hidden or masked through reflection in practice. The complexity of the social action, as it occurs, often prevents productive reflection from happening in situ. There are also multiple relationships between experience and language. The relationships allow one to explore and play in conversation and discussion, depending on who the listeners are. What has taken place is transformed through its interpretation when past events are talked about.

Teaching is a responsive activity that requires the development of skills which are heavily dependent on the context where the learning occurs. With experience in many different classroom situations, teachers may develop a repertoire of technical skills to use in a particular classroom situation to improve inclusive practice. This implies that teaching, which is built upon learning, requires both ethical and technical competence to be continually developed through a process of investigation and self-evaluation.
