Amanda teacher, can you teach Social Studies more slowly? No, goofs. YOU set the curriculum so I have to teach it AT THAT RATE. If you want to slow it down, then change it!
Amanda teacher, can you make the Social Studies vocabulary easier? No, goofs. I didn't write the textbook, so I can't change the terms they use. There is nothing I can do about the fact that even though the kids live on a peninsula, they can't seem to grasp what one is.
I'd love to teach the class more slowly and that would certainly make it easier to cover the vocabulary more intensively. But it isn' UP TO ME!
