Yancey explores reflection as a promising body of practice and
inquiry in the writing classroom. Yancey develops a line of
research based on concepts of philosopher Donald Schon and others
involving the role of deliberative reflection in classroom
contexts. Developing the concepts of reflection-in-action,
constructive reflection, and reflection-in-presentation, she offers
a structure for discussing how reflection operates as students
compose individual pieces of writing, as they progress through
successive writings, and as they deliberately review a compiled
body of their work-a portfolio, for example. Throughout the book,
she explores how reflection can enhance student learning along with
teacher response to and evaluation of student writing.
Reflection in the Writing Classroom will be a valuable
addition to the personal library of faculty currently teaching in
or administering a writing program; it is also a natural for
graduate students who teach writing courses, for the TA training
program, or for the English Education program.
