Pages 12

This chapter presents an approach that considers teaching to be a reflective occupation, and a new model of teacher education in Israel is described, for training the reflective professional teacher. The aim of this chapter is to point out how training student teachers (STs) according to principles of reflection affects the manner in which they work with their pupils in the classroom. It demonstrates the extent to which STs adopted the principles of reflective teaching and how they used them when they worked with pupils.
