BACK TO SCHOOL

Polski3, a middle-school teacher who blogs at Polski's View From Here, ventures into his classroom for a quick look-see before school starts. He has a brief chat with the principal, who says that

... he wants all the teachers in lock-step; everyone teaching the same thing on the same day, being on the "SAME PAGE" at the same time, including testing the students with the SAME TEST on the SAME DAY ...

Polski3 isn't sure that's quite the right approach.


He adds:

Our opening day inservice is "Step Up to Writing." We've done some of this before, but I don't know of anyone actively using it ... it doesn't fit into the packaged curriculum that our LA department is having to .. implement.

Implement, eh? "A tool or instrument used in doing work," (American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language).

"Hmmm," muses Polski3. "... maybe the word "implementer" will replace the word 'teacher.'"
