Week 6 Discussion – Mr. Holland’s Opus

After completing this week’s Readings and Resources, access the link below and watch the video clip.

After you have watched the video clip, look carefully at the Large-Group Participation and the Key Observations in your text. It is interesting to note that the fact the coach’s challenge to be a better teacher was instrumental in Mr. Holland’s trying to teach more effectively. Our goal is to create school communities where peers can push each other in this way. It doesn’t work nearly as well coming from the principal!

Mr. Holland did not succeed with his first few attempts, but he kept trying. These are the tough times for teachers.

How will you ensure support when the tough times come?

Your initial response is due by 11:55 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday and should be between 200-250 words. The initial posting should be a statement of your point of view on the question, supported by the required readings.
