Plan, Reflect, Repeat: The Whittaker Journal
About this deal
The "align" step asks what the national and state standards require and how they will be assessed. Teaching staff also plans curricula by looking at what is taught at earlier and later grade levels and in other disciplines to ensure a clear continuity of instruction throughout the student’s schooling. The Benefits of PDCA ( Quality Progress) The brief history of PDCA and an example of PDCA in action help establish the use of this cycle for continuous process improvement. As well as using a model of reflection, you can carry out other reflective activities to develop your practice. These can include the following.

Reflection-on-action means you reflect after the event on how your knowledge of previous teaching may have directed you to the experience you had. Reflection-in-action allows you to deal with surprising incidents that may happen in a learning environment. It allows you to be responsible and resourceful, drawing on your own knowledge and allowing you to apply it to new experiences. It also allows for personalised learning as, rather than using preconceived ideas about what you should do in a particular situation, you decide what works best at that time for that unique experience and student.
Consider what will you need to do before and during the lesson to make sure your changes happen. What will the students be doing differently to make sure they make progress?

Being reflective helps you challenge your own practice as you will justify decisions and rationalise choices you have made.Reflection can be done on the spot (Schön: reflection-in-action). You should be reflecting on things as they happen in the classroom. This section is where the practitioner makes sense of the experience. They consider what might have helped the learning or hindered it. It is in this stage that the practitioner refers to any relevant literature or research to help make sense of the experience. For example, if you felt the instructions you gave were not clear, you could consult educational research on how to communicate effectively. Some practical ideas include introducing a different task, clearer instructions, time-based activities and activities which appeal to different learning styles.
