How To Talk To My TA
Sat, 11-14-2009 - 4:41pm

So my TA in my classroom did something on Friday that irked the ever-loving crap outta me.

I gave my students their end-of-selection test that comes with our reading curriculum.

If she doesn't like being told what she should do, try approaching it from what the kids need to do and how they feel. Call her aside and start to explain their IEP and why they need to book to prepare for the standardized test. Explain that the kids get upset if they feel they are being criticised, singled-out as different etc.
