a curriculum and/or standards that you don't agree with or buy into? Background - Recently our district just switched to a more "integrated" math curriculum as well as the state adopting new standards that could best be described as a "hot mess". My issues with it is that it appears to be a hodge podge of seeming unrelated topics and does not have the natural flow and progression of the old curriculum.BTW, I do not teach an EOC course and my classes are not affected by these changes - I have all the "other stuff" that the more senior members of the faculty declined (more preps and/or uncomfortable with the material). My colleagues are a hugely demoralized by the change (as I would be too). Although they are professional enough to be doing their best, you can tell they have little or no passion for this new curriculum and standards. (And these are people who I respect btw.) So, the question to you is - are you or have you been in the same boat? How do you handle teaching standards that you don't buy into? Some possible responses are - a) "fake it 'til you make it" b) "I am paid to teach x,y and z so what I think doesn't really matter" c) "I know what's best for my students and I will teach them accordingly" d) "it's just a job and I only have x number of years until retirement" any other thoughts. TIA, I am keenly interested in this topic.
