I subbed in a fourth grade class today. I taught a history lesson from the new textbook the district bought. The curriculum for fourth grade is the history of our state. The textbook is so awful I was absolutely appalled!! I swear it must have been written BY 4th graders!! The sentence structure is terrible. The text is obviously meant to be "chatty." Many sentences begin with "Well," ... many have what appears to be conversation that is not written as conversation (that is, no quotation marks) ... some sentences are sentence fragments ... etc.
EEEKKKK ... I do believe the dumbing down of our state's children is real!!!!
