Stephen Brookfieldthe award-wining educator and bestselling authorexplains how to confront the contradictions involved in creating democratic classrooms by using critical reflection as a tool for ongoing personal and professional development.

All chapters have been thoroughly updated and expanded to reflect today's classroom formats, whether online or face-to-face, or in large lectures or small groups.
Written for any educator willing to challenge their own assumptions, Becoming a Critically Reflective Teacher offers the foundational information and practical tools needed for teachers to reach their true potential.

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."
