What do they say first?

It seems to me that the kinds of questions we ask here are the types we should ask of our department heads, or principals, or even the people we work with on a daily basis.

  • Arts / English Language Arts / Foreign Language / Math / Physical Education / Science / Social Studies / Technology / Other
  • Pre K-12
  • Teacher Collaboration

      It does. However.....In my district we have very few of those people. Unfortunately, district level support staff (Curriculum folks, etc) positions have been the first to get cut when we have had any sort of financial crunch. Our other administrators have had to assume various roles and are stretched very thin. While I hear what you are saying and agree that your idea is often times optimal, it is not always practical for teachers in districts such as my own. *If you are hoping immediate feedback.

        I suppose that if you're in a 1-room schoolhouse, which still exists by the way, it's hard to get into a discourse dealing with practise. What I discovered, even by experience, the kind of conversation I get is limited or contrived. I am also aware that there are PLCs that use lesson studies as a vehicle for deeper collaboration.
