Why Expensive Textbooks & Programs are not Used in a Classroom

  • Was it standards based? Yes.
  • Did it use real world examples? Yes.
  • Was there differentiation recommendations? Yes

Zoom In/Out to Get the Reasons Why

  • Zoom In my class details to see the mismatch:
  • My class is 80 minutes. The book’s activities can be done in 15 minutes or less. I need more.
  • The book activities are either too hard or too easy for my students. I still have to modify it.
  • Zoom Out to School Requirements
  • My principal required everyone to implement a program that is incompatible with the textbook. I need to find something that will interest the students and satisfy his requirement.
  • My teaching evaluation rubrics are asking for something that the book will not provide. I needed to create something that will increase my chances of getting high marks.
