I found myself frustrated in Kroeger’s class by the distinct lack of positive classroom management. Students would talk during lectures, mock the instructor, or be otherwise disrespectful and nothing would be done.
Mr. Kroeger, of course, means well and this is not to say he is a bad educator. His heart was in the right place. He felt constrained by district-ordered curriculum and was quick to voice his dismay.
Conversely, Jones’ class was refreshing as both Jones and Gilliam had a certain rapport with the class. Her lessons were fun and used language, images, and comparisons students could relate to.
Otherwise followed curriculum to a T. Was able to help students who needed it due to co-taught nature. Busy work was given, but was rare. Students felt engaged.
