From the Back Cover:

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION

"Brookfield takes a fresh look at the application of critical reflection to teaching....The reader will find both the familiar and the new covered in this storehouse of insightful, innovative, and practical critically reflective techniques....Most appealing is Brookfield's openness to how the various techniques may be individually tailored by educators to fit unique situations. This makes for a book that is not only richly theory-based, but one that is also critically important for the educator's personal and professional development."
--Adult Learning

REVISED AND UPDATED, THE LANDMARK RESOURCE AND HANDS-ON GUIDE TO THE ESSENTIAL PRACTICE THAT BUILDS BETTER TEACHERS

From Stephen D. Brookfield, winner of the Cyril O. Houle World Award for Literature in Adult Education, comes the revised and updated edition of the classic resource that offers faculty a practical guide for developing the skills for fostering transformative learning by becoming critically reflective educators.

Filled with illustrative examples from a wide variety of classroom settings, the volume explores in detail what critical reflection is and why it is so vital for becoming a skillful teacher. Brookfield shows how educators can reframe teaching by viewing it through four distinctive and complementary lenses: through their students' eyes, colleagues' perceptions, relevant theory and research, and personal experience.

Designed as a practical resource, the second edition contains completely revised chapters as well as new chapters on topics that reflect today's teaching environment including information on social media, teaching race and racism, leadership, and critiquing critically reflective teaching.

Becoming a Critically Reflective Teacher outlines for educators a process for becoming critically reflective about teaching, confronting the contradictions involved in creating democratic classrooms, and using critical reflection as a tool for ongoing personal and professional development.
