TPGES Self-Reflection and Professional Growth Planning

Published: 8/1/2014 11:22 AM
Self-reflection is a process by which teachers assess the effectiveness of their instructional planning, lesson implementation, content knowledge, beliefs, and dispositions for the purpose of self-improvement. The goal of self-reflection is to improve teaching and learning through ongoing thinking on how professional practices impact student and teacher learning.
The goal of a professional growth plan is to facilitate the translation of growth needs identified through self-reflection and other processes into practical activities and experiences that are of value to teachers in strengthening their competencies in the identified growth need areas.
Self-reflection and professional growth planning provide sources of evidence for determining an educator's Overall Professional Practice Rating.
