Critical Thought & Reflection
We are committed to developing critical thought resulting in inquiring and reflective teachers. Therefore, teacher candidates set themselves and their world in question and problematize tacit assumptions, ensuring necessary adjustments to enhance student learning.
The teacher candidate:
- Has a strong foundation in theoretical and conceptual frameworks that integrate research, reflection, technology and practice
- Is teacher as researcher who questions the nature of his/her own thinking
- Uses multiple frames of reference to help conceptualize his/her own positionality in relationship to students, schools, communities, and the professional field
- Creates strategies and solutions in relation to critical thought and reflection
