Leading and Learning: Effective School Leadership Through Reflective Storytelling and Inquiry by Fred Steven Brill.
I agree with Kelly Reseigh, in that this article was engaging and offered a perspective on what the correct questions should be to induce reflection. Reflection is an important part of the learning process, and during reflection is when we grow and learn the most.
- Why did you choose to tell this particular story?
- What was the primary challenge you faced?
- What precipitated this particular problem/dilemma?
- What were your intended outcomes when you became involved in the situation?
- How did you settle on these outcomes?
- How did you go about resolving the situation?
- What process did you use to make your key decisions or choose a particular course of action?
- Who, if anyone, did you involve in your decision-making process?
- Who did you exclude from your decision-making process? Why?
- Were you satisfied with the results of your actions?
- What emotions did you experience throughout the situation?
- Did these emotions color the way in which you responded, either positively or negatively? Explain.
- How would different members of the school community describe the way you handled yourself and the situation?
- If you had to do it all over again, would you respond differently to the situation?
I heartily agree with Kelly that this article is interesting and a must read for educators who are having their students build Digital Stories.
