Fassbinder, Samuel Day – International Journal of Progressive Education, 2006

Noffke, Susan E.; Brennan, Marie – International Journal of Progressive Education, 2005
In the article, authors identify some of the problems in the present notions of reflective teaching. The authors argue that none of these conceptions deal with reflection itself in a reflexive way.
