I've been doing my grades and I realized that 18 out of 26 students in one of my classes is failing or has a D! Mostly D's. This is one of my lowest classes and has a large percentage of special ed kids in it but it also has about 3 or 4 GATE kids. The GATE kids all have straight As, but the general population and the SPED students are really struggling. I don't really know what to do. It isn't typical of my other classes, but I give this class the same work but slightly modified so it's easier. I've done all kinds of modifications for this group but it's also hard because I have a few really advanced students in it so I can't dumb it down for everyone. It's also my last period of the day, so the students are kind of checked out. But they all just did horribly on the last test, and most of them are missing large amounts of work. These kids aren't really behavior problems either. They're really sweet, and I think they try their best. But they're definitely not succeeding! Any ideas?
