Mr. Green paced by my classroom without saying anything. He then returned and presented his lesson plan for the first time (see attached copy). I, however, have prepared and planned to teach today’s lesson. I informed Mr. Green that after he handed the lesson plan that I would teach the class for one day and it would be today. He objected and left my classroom. On his way out, he said to Gary McGibney that he had been asked to terminate his block with me. Gary came to see me and clarified with me. Gary asked me to let Mr. Green cool off and emailed him later that his block had not been terminated. I informed Mabini of the incident. Half an hour later Mabini informed me that Mr. Green is in her room. I took this opportunity to explain to Mr. Green my intention. It took me 20 minutes to calm him down from talking loudly and pacing back and forth while we were talking in the staff room. I explained to him that we are here to help him to become a better teacher. Gary came over and asked Mr Green to trust me, Mabini, Wally and Gary himself. Green said loudly “I trust no one. I trust myself”. I did allow him to teach today’s lesson using my lesson plan. He blew it by making a lot of mistakes. He needed fine tunes on his knowledge.
EDIT: Mr. Confused has asked if he could see an example of my lesson plans. Here is a unit I prepared for Prof. Bush's course. I have more available if I look for them. You can link to the pdf here.
EDIT 2: And this is the "lesson plan" referred to in Mr. Tram's diary.
