Ms. Gray is a teacher in your school, and you are there to observe her class today. This is her second year of teaching. At the end of the video are some suggestions to “fix the class.”
As you consider the four supervisory approaches — directive control, directive informational, collaborative, and non-directive, which of these will you engage as you sit down with Ms. Gray at the end of the day? What made you choose the particular behavior? What will be your next steps with Ms. Gray?
Your initial responses are due by 11:55 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday and should be between 200-250 words.
