Strong Words
On Wednesdays, while your students are at PE, your team meets. The team plans for the next week. However, several of your team members use strong language, which you find inappropriate. You are worried a student or administrator will walk in and hear the language. What should you do?

I think that honesty would be the best way to approach this problem. First, share your feelings and concerns with the other team member. Then, if the problem is still not resolved you can take the next step and go to the appropriate channels. Open communication is beneficial for all team members.

Personally I do not feel any offense at "strong language." What I dislike is language which is meant to tear down other people. It is the intent behind the speech and not the words chosen which are of utmost importance. If this is a meeting of adults only, we should not need a babysitter.

I would mention to my co-workers that their language makes me uncomfortable, but if they continue to use the language, I wouldn't bring it up again. While it might be offensive, they are adults and have the right to speak however they want. I would refrain from bringing it up again if they continue to speak this way because collaborative planning is very important and beneficial for students, and I would not want to put myself in a situation where I cannot get that feedback and input from my team.

I would confront them directly. I would make it clear to my coworker that I have their best interest in mind.
