Angelides, Panayiotis, Leigh, James and Gibbs, Paul ORCID: (2004) Analyzing practice for improving schools: the study of vignettes. School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 15 (3-4) . pp. 467-485. ISSN 0924-3453 [Article] (doi:10.1080/09243450512331383282)


This article suggests a method for analyzing patterns of school practice for improvement purposes. In particular it describes outcomes of a study that point to some promising possibilities, in terms of encouraging teachers to reflect on their practice, for the purpose of improvement. It argues that by discussing and analyzing vignettes, teachers can improve their practice, not only individually, but also as a team. In addition, this analysis can help schools to develop as organizations. At the end, this suggestion is supported with an example which illustrates the potential of using vignettes for improving schools, whilst, at the same time, demonstrating how the procedure might be used.
