While supporting a teacher leading her first training, you notice the participants are very distracted by a big announcement. Knowing the unique qualities of adult learners, how would you coach the teacher in providing high-quality instruction?
- “Just tell the teachers to put their worries to the side for now and think about it later.”
- “Stop the training and give them the whole time to vent and worry.”
- “Take a few moments to acknowledge the issue and then continue on with the training.”
- “Report the teacher’s behavior to the school leader and recommend consequences for misbehavior.”
