My Job/Your Job

My Job/Your Job is an activity to do with teacher/students, your own children/parents at home, principals/vice-principals/secretaries, educational assistant/student(s), or any place where you want to clarify what each of the jobs/roles of the positions are.  It is an activity that is done with both partners where there is a discussion of whose job is what to clarify roles ahead of any problems or confusions that might arise.  We take for granted that everyone has the same picture of what each others’ jobs are.  Diane Gossen created this T-chart for jobs clarification so that instead of criticizing our students/children or colleagues, we can re-direct the conversation to the pre-concluded pictures of what we all agreed our jobs were.  This allows for personal ownership of our roles as team members.
