PostSubject: Adapted Texts or Twisted Facts?   Tue Jul 14, 2009 2:47 am

As every one of us knows, teachers should handle the textbook attentively, and tackle the content critically. Errors are of different kinds: spelling, grammatical, French and Arabic interference…etc. But, authenticity is and should be a must none has to dismiss or neglect!
Yes, there are mistakes said to be unforgettable!
While reading something about the British colonies in the Americas, something struck my eyes and made me really realise to what extent ‘we had been taken for a ride’ by those who are granted the responsibility of compiling the textbook.
In the textbook, File Four, Script Four, you can read:
It was Princess Pocahontas who, later on, married one of the leaders of the colony (the Jamestown colony), Captain James Smith.
Now, Who was James Smith and Who was John Rolfe?

Click on these two links, and then …...

At first, it was File Three and Jimmy Spheens’ song, which no one has found or managed to know about, and now, a more serious mistake- a historical one!

Should we look at things with a critical eye, to know and understand more, or rather ask our pps to have permanently a correcting pen to erase then write…and where to write? On their textbook! So, why asking them to buy a source of untrustworthy information?
