If you are looking for a book that provides concrete advice for establishing group reflection, then Talking Teaching is the perfect choice. The work is the product of a three-year grant-supported induction year program. College faculty from an associated group of colleges joined staff developers from a growing suburban district in creating an entire year's curriculum for beginning teachers. One component included monthly meetings of reflective practice groups including new and experienced teachers, a college professor, and usually, one district administrator. The group soon became aware of the need for collegial conversation in supporting teachers both new and experienced. Teachers were eager to share advice and offer support, and the reflective group process became an educational vehicle for making theory-to-practice connections. Will be of interest to principals, faculty/staff development coordinators, and teacher preparation faculty.
