I'm supposed to follow the textbook and trying not to miss anything in the textbook. When I miss some in the textbook, I feel sorry for the student and failing responsibility. It is not the class designed by my will but accepted through the rule which the publisher think the best. It doesn't include my students' own concept.
Our text book had sixteen chapters for me to teach in a year. That means I had to finish teaching two chapters in a month since our national curriculum required us to do it.
