More to the Story

As Sally and Harry plan the content of their instruction, they are presented with a myriad of issues. Harry is focusing on the lessons he will teach to support what Sally is teaching in the classroom. Harry's lessons are focused on the research process while Sally's focus is mainly on content learning.

 

While Harry is pleased with this arrangement, he can't help but wish he and Sally had planned to co-teach some lessons so that students could see the integration of process and content more "up close." He thinks that if Sally could see how he uses technolgy in his lesson and some of the motivational strategies he will incorporate, it might actually help to motivate her to try such strategies and techniques.

Things to Ponder

  1. Are there ways in which Harry might encourage Sally to go even further and plan and teach one or two lessons together, either in the classoom or library?
  2. How might Harry help Sally be more comfortable with using technology for teaching and learning?
