Main Task: Reflect on Due Process and the Rights of a Teacher (10 Points)

For this Activity, you have read Chapters 9 and 11 in your textbook, and you have visited the link, Cleveland Board of Education v. Loudermill. For your next task you will share your knowledge of Due Process and the Rights of a Teacher by responding to the scenario below.

Please read the scenario presented below and assume Ms. Green is a teacher in your district and is protected by the same rights you have under due process and/or your association.
What do you do?
As principal, while doing your daily walk-throughs and classroom observations, you notice Ms. Green a veteran teacher who is set in her ways of instruction and is not conforming to the newly implemented Language Arts curriculum. Each time you visit Ms. Green’s class, you observe her utilizing very traditional instructional methods; students are sitting in rows and doing traditional read alouds as Ms. Green sits at her desk listening to the student reading, grading papers or skimming a magazine which is open on her desk. In several conferences you express your concerns to Ms. Green and offer her an opportunity to visit other teachers and participant in professional development in hopes it will inspire her to adhere to a new instructional methodology. Ms. Green politely declines your offer and shares she is a tenured teacher who has been in her classroom for nearly thirty years and has seen principals and programs come and go. Ms. Green politely shares her instructional methods are effective and it is today’s students who do not want to learn.

Please keep the following in mind when you are creating your response:
• Support your steps of action with case law, citations, publications, and journals.
• 5 resources minimum. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.

Length: 5-7 pages
