I'm a 1st year "aide" in this school so I'm always afraid to say something when I notice something should be changed but I'm really REALLY struggling with this one... I observe and help in the 7th grade math class for 1 period a day. Right now we are learning about circle graphs, percentages, percents, and perportions. The teacher is doing a great job of describing circle graphs but hasn't started with the basics with these 7th graders... like how to use a protractor! Today was complete chaos because I'm trying discretely to show kids how to use the protractor while she's going on making an entire cirlce graph, graphing the angles and everything... Is there a way I can bring this up to her without sounding "high and mighty"? I really don't feel like I could do a better job than her, she does a supurb job as it is... it's just this one time that it's making my job even harder and her kids are completely lost and I dont' think she realizes it!
