Three Sides of Teaching: Styles, Models, and Diversity
We are a fly on the wall of a fifth grade classroom at the beginning of the school day, eight-thirty on the clock in this school where the opening bell sounds at eight forty-five. The students are entering, chatting with one another, watering the jungle of plants in the classroom, and putting words on a “flip” chart, new words that they have encountered in their individual reading. At about twenty minutes to nine the teacher, Ms Bishop, enters, smiling and making her way toward the desk in the circle of desks which is her home base. She is pulling a cat-carrier which contains an adult male and female and their six kittens — she breeds cats. These members of this little feline family have been feeling poorly and she has taken them to an early morning visit to the veterinarian.
