The teacher as reflexive professional : making visible the excluded discourse in teacher standards
Ryan, Mary E. & Bourke, Theresa (2013) The teacher as reflexive professional : making visible the excluded discourse in teacher standards. Discourse : Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 34(3), pp. 411-423.
In the current climate of accountability, political manoeuvring, changing curriculum, increasingly diverse student cohorts and community expectations, teachers, more than ever, need to develop the skills and abilities to be reflective and reflexive practitioners. This study examines national teacher professional standards from Australia and the UK to identify the extent to which reflexivity is embedded in key policy documents that are intended to guide the work of teachers in those countries. Using Margaret Archer's theories of reflexivity and morphogenesis, and methods of critical discourse analysis, we argue that these blueprints for teachers’ work exclude reflexivity as an essential and overarching discourse of teacher professionalism.
