Question Detail

What do you do when you see a teacher needs to make some changes, but the teacher thinks the problem is the students or the administration not their practice?

A very creative teacher is trying to implement a unit that is very student-directed, however, his classroom management is not good and his students are not used to this kind of learning. I have suggested scaffolding by starting with a combination of smaller student projects, use rubrics/checklists, and more written directions that students can reference. He seems reluctant to do the extra written and planning work .

      Is there a way you can support him in doing the work needed to implement those types of scaffolds? For example, could you provide him with lesson ideas or scaffold some of the units?
