A textbook is not a curriculum, a textbook is not a curriculum…I have restated this phrase over and over to anyone who will listen. Spoiler alert, almost no one listens! A textbook is a tool, a resource, but it has too much power. I understand why, especially at the elementary level where teachers have to be experts in all subjects. However, it never surprises me when textbooks leave out standards. Greg Tang is always saying that the people who write the textbooks are not the ones teaching. What do you think?
