Adventures in Autism ~Autistic Reflections~ Volume 1

A long time ago, in Algebra II — the same year that 9/11 happened — I curiously asked my teacher a question without any hint of malice:

“Why don’t you teach everything in the book? Why only bits and pieces?”

What I was wondering was why we didn’t go through the entire book sequentially.

The answer I was hoping to get but didn’t understand at the time was that teachers design lesson plans that don’t include entire books. In fact, a few years later, in college, I’d find that teachers also design lesson plans that don’t include the book they required you to buy at all.

The answer I actually got was:

“Don’t question the way I teach.”
