A coaching model that encourage teachers to reflect on their practice
The Reflective Cycle Gibbs (1988)
An example, incident, situation or experience that you would like to explore further in relation to your work other area of your life that impacts on how well you perform
- Explore feelings
Think about your feelings at the time and since
Examine the key facts, issues and events at the time of the incident or example you have identified and articulate your thoughts
Consider the impact of the situation on your own practice and on others around you, what assumptions have you made about the impact of the example you describe
What you have gained from the experience? What was good and less good about the outcomes? How relevant and useful is the knowledge you have gained as a result of the experience?
What have you learnt? How could you have done it differently? If you found yourself in the same situation what would you do differently?
