I like course books for most of the reasons given and dislike them for most of the reasons stated. If you are an independent teacher the course book issue can really be a problem. The biggest advantage with course books is that when purchased by a school division, they have a staff (curriculum to create those supplemental worksheets/activities or omitted sections. So, the teacher does not have to spend time creating an authentic supplemented because it's been done for the whole division. The better the district is at creating these materials, the more joy the teacher can have teaching adding a few items to reflect his or her style or that off the students.

As a teacher I have wondered why a particular was chosen where so much has to be supplemented.
