Your point is well taken, Stephen. These scriopts do not allow for questions at all, nor do they even allow thinking. "This is a [triangle]. What is this?  Yes!! A triangle. Jimmy, point to the triangle.. etc.]
Not so responsive, at least in my view.

>>Interesting. Do they make scripted programs that help teachers answer the unique questions thinking students may ask? Or is there a generic way in which all students learn, process, understand, get confused by information presented in a class? My sense of good teaching is that teachers must indeed reinvent the wheel daily if they are responsive teachers.<<
