Said (1994). Chapter 1 – Overlapping Territories, Intertwined Histories. (Culture and Imperialism.)

“The wonder of it is that the schooling for such relatively provincial thought and action is still prevalent, unchecked, uncritically accepted, recurringly replicated in the education of generation after generation. We are all taught to venerate our nations and admire our traditions: we are taught to pursue their interests with toughness and in disregard for other societies. A new and in my opinion appalling tribalism is fracturing societies, separating peoples, promoting greed, bloody conflict, and uninteresting assertions of minor ethnic or group particularity.” (p 20)

Dyment & O’Connell (2014). When the Ink Runs Dry: Implications for Theory and Practice When Educators Stop Keeping Reflective Journals.

“… we interpreted a reflective journal to be an integrative one in [page break] which the writers critically analyse and grapple with theory, practice, and connections between theory and practice. Importantly, a reflective journal extends beyond the narrower focus of other types of journals by encouraging the writer to take a holistic view of their experience.” (p 418-419)
