Did the student get it?
A 9th grade teacher planned a great lesson. She was excited about teaching her favorite author and era, Shakespeare. However, the students had little to no exposure to the author and became a bit overwhelmed with the teacher's approach. Parents called the school administrator and complained that the teacher was not preparing the students for real-world reading and writing. What happens when the teacher prepares a great lesson and feels the wrong kids showed up?

A lot of times you have to prepare your students for a great lesson with background information and mini lessons that will help them to develop an understanding of the information that is to be presented to them. Another technique for a great lesson would be to stop every 5-6 minutes and ask students a variety of questions to keep them engaged and on track. This method is called the New American Lecture method.

I agree with this solution. This also creates a opportunity for discussion.

Stopping every five to six minutes to ask the students questions is a great technique to see if the students are comprehending the material.

I feel parents sometimes but in a little to much, what is real world reading? Shakespeare is our history and if we were to teach real world reading that teacher would have had the administrator called, because the real world is so much worse than Shakespeare. The teacher might have needed to introduce the time of Shakespeare and his writings first. I am not sure what her lesson plans had in them, but depending on when the phone calls started coming in she could adjust her plans to include research for the students to do to build that background knowledge.

A teacher is responsible for teaching the students he or she has. The teacher and students might both benefit if the teacher seeks out and implements strategies to connect students to the content to build a stronger foundation upon which students may construct a deeper and more meaningful understanding of the content, and thus, increases their chances for mastery.

Try playing a video on Shakespeare for your students to help get them acquainted with him and his work and then a discussion about him and his accomplishments.

It would be helpful if the teacher gave some type of pre-assessment to help her in understanding what her students know about the upcoming topic. From there she could plan her lessons according to what her students know and understand about the material. It would also help the students if the teacher made the content fit into real world-scenarios. Have students write their own version of one of Shakespeare's plays, etc.
