Assisting Marginal Teachers: A Training Model.
Jackson, Cleaster M.
Principal, v77 n1 p28-29 Sep 1997
Marginal teachers have three common behaviors that have questionable or negative effects on student learning: failure to create an appropriate classroom atmosphere, lack of personal insight and motivation, and unwillingness to accept responsibility for problems. When mentoring and improvement programs fail, collaborative programs with the right balance of assessment, training sessions, and evaluation will offer marginal teachers needed support while addressing ineffective practices.
