Abstract

This study is intended to identify the level of competence and practices in writing reflection among the teachers in the Johor Bahru district. The study was conducted in three types of schools which were urban, rural and premier type of schools. The study involved hundred fifty five respondents for quantitative test and thirty two respondents consisting of new teachers, excellent teachers and experienced teachers who were selected by random cluster for qualitative test. The instruments used are teacher’s record book and questionnaires. There are four types of reflective writing, which are descriptive writing, descriptive reflection, dialog reflection, and critical reflection. The data obtained were analyzed using descriptive statistics (min, frequency and percentage) and statistical inference (one way ANOVA and post-hoc). The results showed that the skills of teachers in reflective writing is at a moderate level. In order to enhance the awareness on the importance of reflective writing it is suggested that courses both within and out should be carried out. Courses such as in-house training on writing reflections in teacher’s record book, supervision and regular monitoring by school administrator with the addition of workshops and seminar will help to achieve the objectives on reflective writing. This research is expected to have implications in improving the effectiveness of teaching and learning and the creation of a more balanced curriculum in teachers’ education.
