Abstract

This exploratory study examines the content of student teachers' reflective thinking that has undergone a guided reflective thinking process. An action research methodology was employed to examine the effect of the action plan on the quality of the student teachers' content of reflective thinking. Their reflective entries were analysed for the content and how the content develops throughout their teaching practicum. Through guided tools of reflection such as lead questions, the student teachers were able to relate to various aspects of teaching and learning that were necessary to improve themselves as a teacher. However, making connection between theory and practice in the process of developing teacher's knowledge is still lacking.
