Clip to ScrapBook #27

I taught fifth grade, and yes they had a state project that as a fifth grader they should be able to do at home independently given the right directions and format (at school). It is not the teacher’s responsibility to do it with them at school.

Personally if I knew a student did not have home support, I would give them guidance from the beginning of the project. I would also allow them time at school to work on it when I was available for support.

So let’s jump ahead to high school. When the term paper is assigned that includes research and footnotes does that mean a child without home support will expect the teacher to sit and do it with them? I think not.
