A reader tells us what is expected of Pre-K teachers in New York CitY, where teachers must administer laborious tasks which are filed away and forgotten.
too late..pre-k is already being assessed with performance tasks.
that’s what the DOE calls units–bundles. I’m not quite sure why.
Back to the assessment. After the children drew their pictures, each child had to conference with the teacher and tell the teacher what he/she had drawn and what sense had been used.
And they didn’t really learn anymore than when I taught the 5 senses in one week.
