Self Reflection

The self-reflection should be conducted as the starting point. Use it to evaluate where your school is now and where you want it to be in each of 4 big areas that offer opportunities for educational reform.

Consider what areas you are targeting for reform, and to what degree that reform is incremental improvement or fundamental change. Identify barriers to change and ways to address them. There is no right or wrong answers—this is a self-reflection to help each school understand the choices it is making in the service of its reform efforts. Evaluate your situation based on people’s daily behavior not just on school visions.

The self-reflection can be conducted many times during your innovation journey as a measure of progress as well as a reminder of why you are innovating in the first place. Make sure that as many stakeholders as possible have an opportunity to complete the self-reflection and encourage honesty as it is the best way to transform practice.

None of the data that you input will be kept by anyone except those you send it to or if you print it off and hand it out.

The four key areas for focus are:

  1. 1. Teaching, Learning and Assessment
  2. 2. Leadership and Culture of Innovation
  3. 3. Ongoing Professional Development
  4. 4. Learning Environments
