James Smits, Smitty, is asked by his principal to be the lead teacher to a last minute student-teacher placement from the University. He reluctantly agrees, concerned that he has limited experience to share. He realizes the assignment is harder than he thought as Glen is struggling with some issues around how he is treated by his father. Glen’s straight forward disagreement with anything outside of how he believes classrooms should be run, causes Smitty to dig deep and defend why he runs his classroom the way he does. Glen progresses from believing his job is to make all students the same knowers, to creating thinkers ready to use their passions and skills. This work of tactical fiction is intended to show what a classroom can look like when a teacher has a strong sense of WHY they run their classroom as they do and then intentionally choose tools and processes that support how they reach their why. Scoring Scales, Taxonomies, Learning Continua and Hierarchies, are explained both in the narrative and as procedures at the end of the book.
