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?)
