My lesson was graded "ineffective" because I didn't include text-dependent questioning that day. Does that standard need to be taught in every class every day?
My students read "The treasure of Lemon Brown" and various articles on the history of the blues in America. Their assignment was to write their own blues lyrics and then record and present them using GarageBand. The students were engaged, using small groups for peer review, and addressing several standards. However, the principal said that because they were not using text dependent questioning on that particular day that my lesson was ineffective . Thoughts? How many standards need to be hit during a single lesson?
