Re: Talk Read Talk Write in the Band Hall
If the school was serious about the students becoming better at writing, then the English teachers are the experts. Let them do this in English class. Let the Ag teachers teach Ag, the math teachers teach math, the science teachers teach science, etc. There is a reason that we have teachers with degrees in different subject areas. Let the experts do their jobs in their areas of expertise and quit trying to dump it on the non experts. If the band can't play with a good sound or read music, it is no the job of the English teacher to fix this. It was not why they applied for and agreed to take the job. Saying, "other duties as assigned" may be a phrase that some want to hurl out, but forcing non subject area teachers to teach out of their area is a disservice to the students. If I go to the dentist, I don't want him performing an eye exam on me and I don't want him to give me a colonoscopy. That's why we are "like this."
