My husband teaches 6th grade social studies and had a curriculum specialist design his teaching materials this year. The specialist used the class book and designed the teaching plan around it.
She also told my husband that there are probably more auditory learners than what he realizes. She said that recorders should be allowed so students can play lectures later on to help get the information into their brains.
The school has a no recorder policy in place, so he cannot do that. All of her other suggestions and teaching plan were great and very helpful. He said he would be happy if they let her come back next year.
