My big takeaway was don’t trust the text book to give depth to your teaching and student learning! We use the same texts as you do in Ontario here in Alberta and you’re right! I’ve never seen this type of thinking in the activities and questions proposed there. This year I’ve ditched the text book much more, in favour of more thoughtful problem-solving and task-oriented teaching and I find my students much more inquisitive and able to make links between concepts (as compared to other years)…not to mention more engaged! Thanks for pointing this out. It has confirmed the change I’ve made this year yet again!
