What does "teaching based off of someone else" mean?

I took the post to mean "teaching based on someone else['s approach and/or curriculum]"  :shrug:

A curriculum isn't a script. It's not as though everything is mapped out for the teacher. It's just a framework to be used as a guide--a list of the skills and suggested works to study that lend themselves to the learning of those skills and a timeline to help the teacher plan out the school year. There's plenty of room to move and change within a curriculum, and it's a standard by which teacher performance can be evaluated. Without a curriculum, the teacher is just shooting in the dark, not is the students have already covered the skills or concepts that the teacher has selected for the year or if they will cover them in future years and not knowing if the teacher is meeting the department's and administration's expectations. From what I can tell, teaching without a curriculum is a great deal more work than teaching with one (not that I'd know, since I've never actually taught with a curriculum).

Hrm.  OK.

To me, it seems like you have a lot greater freedom in teaching from something you made.

I know that when I am designing things, part of me really enjoys the whole "do it on your own/on the fly."  Sometimes it's nice to have a guideline, but others....  :D

Maybe engineering is way different from teaching, in that regard.

With languages there is an order of acquistition, a natural sequence in which specific skills are more easily mastered. So there isn't really that much leeway in how and when you cover certain points, that is, if you're trying to do it as efficiently and effectively as possible. A curriculum just lays out the master plan, reminding the teacher which skills need to be mastered by when, in order for students to complete the program with the expected level of proficiency. The teacher still gets to decide how to present the material, how to practice it, and how to evaluate student performance.

Right. The same idea goes for learning to write (I don't mean learning to form letters, etc., but learning how to write a paper, i.e., learning to craft an argument, learning to structure a paragraph, etc.) and for learning to analyze literature. You have to know what rhyme scheme is and how to identify it before you can think about how a poem's rhyme scheme might give insight into the poem's meaning.

This: https://www.etsy.com/transaction/113867092

And this: https://www.etsy.com/transaction/113867091

All the way from France. I'm going to see what I can do to repair them. I'll be opening a store on Etsy soon for my handmade rosaries, and these gorgeous antique rosaries might end up for sale...if I don't fall in love with them myself.  ;D

Why, thank you!

It's not quite open yet, as I'm still gathering up enough stock to open it up, but here's the link to where you'll be able to find it once it's open (which will be no later than mid-February if things go as planned): http://www.etsy.com/people/MorningStarGoods

My regular Etsy store that carries non-religious vintage items is BoredomByProxy.

Ps 135

Quia in humilitáte nostra memor fuit nostri: * quóniam in ætérnum misericórdia eius.
Et redémit nos ab inimícis nostris: * quóniam in ætérnum misericórdia eius.
Qui dat escam omni carni: * quóniam in ætérnum misericórdia eius.
Confitémini Deo cæli: * quóniam in ætérnum misericórdia eius.
Confitémini Dómino dominórum: * quóniam in ætérnum misericórdia eius.

For he was mindful of us in our affliction: * for his mercy endureth for ever.
And he redeemed us from our enemies: * for his mercy endureth for ever.
Who giveth food to all flesh: * for his mercy endureth for ever.
Give glory to the God of heaven: * for his mercy endureth for ever.
Give glory to the Lord of lords: * for his mercy endureth for ever.

-I retract any and all statements I have made that are incongruent with the True Faith, and apologize for ever having made them-

Stations of the cross picture for 1.99 at the thrift shop.  Also a statue (smallish) of Our Lady of Fatima for 1.99. :) :) :)
