Subject: Teaching strategy

Dear Suzanne: You said that you are expected by your district to use these teaching strategies. There may be a reason that they want you to do that. They would not have passed this without some research or evidence to support that these strategies would be helpful. I think you should ask them for more info and why they passed the expectancies. I do not think the teachers should just refuse the recommended material but should work with the district that you are in. That means to seek information from them by asking questions and give them information about your personal experience with the material so you can come to some kind of agreement that both will be happy with. You should put more importance on your own research (and personal experience) than on that of another persons research. You are an intelligent person so you will be able to see if there is the material works for you or not. That would be important information to give to the district. It would be helpful if you could explain more about what the expectancies are: Note taking ( who takes notes and on what?) oral recitation (What does this mean?) Test preparation (three day? does this mean you or the students?) Owen
