Expectations of Students
Let's Discuss
Classroom Teacher:
Works in isolation
Only responsible for their students
Keeps door closed
Believe that how their students behave in other classrooms is solely the responsibility of the teachers in those rooms (Ron Morrish -- With All Due Respect, p.145)
Believe that supervision outside the classroom is to be avoided unless mandated under the supervision schedule (Ron Morrish -- With All Due Respect, p.145)
Lose the concept of building on top of what the previous teacher accomplished (Ron Morrish -- With All due Respect, p.146)
21st Century School Teacher:
