Primary trainees' reflection-in-action

Edwards, Julie-Ann (2007) Primary trainees' reflection-in-action Proceedings of the British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics, 27, (1), pp. 30-35.

Record type: Article


This paper explores some of the reflective writing undertaken by trainees on a Primary PGCE course following small-scale classroom-based research as part of their work towards Masters level credits. Types of reflection evident are categorised and the frequency of these categories related to the overall grade achieved for the research undertaken. Questions are raised about the nature of these reflections in relation to what is described by Schön as ‘reflection-in-action’ by professionals. Some of the writing is examined in the context of the use of the language about reflection on both personal and professional development which is promoted throughout the PGCE course.
