Watch the short video showing Chicago teachers in a PD session. The way the consultant is presenting could be taken in one of two ways:
- The presenter is modelling a teaching method pretending that the teachers are students. If this is the case I’m pretty sure there are a number of effective pedagogies ahead of mindless robotic parroting.
- Or the presenter is actually trying to teach adults using this method. If this is the case WOW!
You Tube description of video content: “This presenter was one of several consultants flown in from California and the United Kingdom for the Chicago Public Schools’ Office of Strategic School Support Services’ special network. This is a professional development for teachers of Saturday ISAT preparation classes.”
