|So here's a question for my fellow Texas bloggers. Does your district use CScope?? My district bought CScope as a curriculum a few years back, but never really made us use it. |
This year, however, they've started to throw out the new buzzword "non-negotiable." Which, to me, means... don't bother
I've been using it a few years for Science. And for science, it is great, minus the fact that there's nothing to grade. For everything else.. I hate it.
We're departmentalized, so I teach Math, Science, and Social Studies aka Texas History. I've looked through the Math... and ... well.. I'm at a loss for words.
We tried it once for social studies... and unless they've completely revamped the lessons, I'll be trying to get my kids to compare the economy of the American Indians in Texas to the Old Three Hundred that Stephen F. Austin brought to Texas before my kids even know who Stephen F. Austin is.
And to add insult to injury.... no lessons are posted on the CScope website, except the first six weeks. They'll be adding the rest as the year goes on.. so I can forget about planning ahead..
So... maybe I'm looking for some reassurance from someone who has used CScope and loves it.... OR I might just be venting... not sure.
