Introduction to the Question Two Responses

In the second set of question prompts, the RTLs were asked to respond to these three slightly different versions of the same question: What do you understand by the term ‘Reflective Practice’? What does RP mean to you? What do you think of when you hear or read the phrase ‘RP’? The reason for the different versions is that, as language educators, we know that presenting the same question multiple times—but each time in a slightly different linguistic and/or grammatical form, with a slightly different focus—can increase the likelihood of eliciting more thorough and thoughtful replies, which accurately describes the accounts in Question Two.
