"Anyone serious about leading the reform of teaching and learning in our schools should read this book. Kottkamp and Osterman reframe the conversation about what it means to lead a learning organization. Their reflective processes hold promise for educators as they struggle together to create new possibilities for student learning."
Nelda Cambron-McCabe, Professor

In this age of mandated reforms, reflective practice is a truly effective, empowering way to make meaningful, positive changes.

Written for teachers, administrators, and professional development specialists in schools and universities, this book is an educators’ guide to reflective practice. In clear, accessible language, the authors explain the potential to create meaningful change in schools and show you how to integrate reflective practice effectively into the daily work of schools.

The book:

  • Explains reflective practice as a professional development strategy and its importance for school reform
  • Offers ideas and practical strategies to facilitate collaborative, data-based inquiry, dialogue, and problem-solving in schools
  • Describes reflective practice in action and illustrates its power to create meaningful change in classrooms
  • Shows how reflective practice is an important step in creating professional learning organizations
