Reframing is seeing a situation or context in another frame, thus letting new conceptions and interpretation develop. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reframing#Example_of_reframing)
I want to give some examples of reframing in teaching:
- This is a very noisy class.
It's great to be with such a lively class.
- This is such a difficult group.
I'm going to make a real difference to the group.
- I have taught them so many times and they are still getting it wrong.
They have a different way of learning and I'll figure it out.
Why not add onto the list and create new frames together?
- Teaching resources
- Teacher development
- Teacher training
