A local school is making its teachers all follow a script to teach. For example in 4th grade every 4th grade teacher should in Sept read Old Yeller. During the time that they are reading this book, every 4th grade teacher will teach the same lesson on the same day. These lessons will be the exact same lesson in each classroom because the teachers will have a script to follow. Is this really the way that education is going? I have taught various grade levels and subjects in the past 22 yrs. I know how to write lesson plans and how to use/follow the teacher edition. Is this a new practice or have I just always been lucky to be where I could actually teach and not just read a script?
