JARPA AZAGRA, Marcela  and  BECERRA ROJAS, Nelson. Writing for pedagogical reflection: conceptions and discursive genres that students write in two pedagogical careers. Logos [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.2, pp.364-381. ISSN 0716-7520.

The writing for pedagogical reflection is a professional teaching competence that must be developed during the initial training so that, later, it can be applied in different educational contexts, thus enriching the teaching and learning process both of the teacher himself and of the students with the that this interacts. The field of practical training is a curricular space where this competence assumes greater preponderance, as the future teacher must transfer various theoretical knowledge towards the classroom exercise. Under this context, it is possible to recognize the production and circulation of certain specific written genres that account for this competence. The main objective of this research is to characterize, from a socio-theoretical perspective, the genres of pedagogical reflection that students of two pedagogical careers of a Chilean university write during their practical training. From a qualitative methodological approach and with a design of Multiple Case Studies, two data collection instruments were applied: semi- structured interviews and focus group to professors and students of the Special Education and Nursery Education career. The main results include the recognition of writing as a resource that reflects the pedagogical reflection of the teachers in training; the use of certain pedagogical genres in each career and also the existence of a progression in the use of these according to the complexity and progress in the training path of the Plan of Studies.

Keywords : writing for pedagogical reflection; pedagogical genres; writing skills in initial teacher training.
