Reflection on and for Success: Using Reflective Narratives to Reawaken Teachers’ Inquiry Spirit in Working with ELS
This proposed interactive panel brings together teachers and teacher educators from northern, middle, and southern states in the U.S. and Canada to explore, highlight, and value pre-service and in-service teachers and teacher educators’ reflective narratives in working with ELs. Our panel explores the often-discounted stories of our teachers. This interactive session will engage participants into discussion around how fellow researchers and teachers effectively used “narrative” as reflective and effective practice in their current and future work with English learners, including ELs with disabilities. The findings have important implications for the improvement of our own and peer institutions’ teacher preparation programs.
