No Comments

Today we will complete our discussion of the seven primary barriers to changing instructional practices and the appropriate response by leadership. To review, the primary barriers are:

 

  1. Ignorance
  2. Lack of Training
  3. Habit
  4. Choice
  5. Fear
  6. Helplessness
  7. Obstinance
