CFHS observation, backwards to a lesson plan.
Once again I had the honor of observing a master in action. Mr. U has a terrific community in his classroom. The rules and norms are stated clearly on the walls. His objectives are on the white board. J and I entered the room with class already in session. Students were gathering information. This approach appeared to one of indirect teaching. Students gather information first, and this results in inquiry at the end. I couldn’t take notes fast enough. This teacher has very clear ideas on what he believes should be taught in High School.
