Storyboard Text

  • I hope he liked my lesson the other day.  I made sure my kids were quiet.
  • Authoritarian Style: The principal is at the top and students are at the bottom.  The teachers are somewhere in the middle and make sure students obey rules.  Younger people are used to this style in schooling. (Khol 1969)
  • Principal Smith is so scary!  I feel like I can't approach him or ask him questions.
  • Open Classroom: The teacher and students are free to choose and change their seats.  If discussions can develop without the students raising their hands, why bother with that procedure? (Khol 1969)
  • Okay class, lets have an open discussion about the plot of the story we voted to read!
  • Open Classroom: It is possible that rules and routines are necessary only when they become apparent for the group's functioning.
  • Let's all come up with a class agreement on how we will treat each other during discussions!
  • We love that we have a say in our learning!
