I really tried.
Maybe there is something wrong with me.
I mean who wouldn't want a nice, new, clean book with every word you should say written out in nice, clean, bold text?
Who wouldn't want each lesson guided?
I couldn't do it.
When it told me to say certain words, I found myself saying other words.
When it told me how to write something on the board, I was adding things, making comments.
No, that's not what I am supposed to do.
I am supposed to follow the script.
Why can't I realize that it makes me a better teacher? My life easier? The kids better learners?
Why, oh why, can't I follow the script?
