I taught a lesson in my practicum today and it went so badly. The lesson was intended to be a quick review of the distributive property and I realized that most kid were really struggling. A lot of students didn't have access to the launch I had planned which was hard and the format of the chart that I made was confusing. My mentor said the worksheeet was great but I don't think she had the chance to review it with detail. And the kids also did not participate. The lesson was intended to be 20 mins and went to 45 mins. The class has 50% students with IEPs and no special ed co-teacher so I feel like I don't know how to teach them. And there are a few kids who are bored because they know how to do everything... In addition to that, we have so many behavior problems. Kids yelling across the room, kids not listening to directions, kids on their phones. Today all of the kids left without being dismissed and left a huge mess in the classroom. It's impossible to get the class's attention at the end of the day without yelling over them. My mentor often talks over the yelling or talking kids and there is no one we can send them to if they misbehave. I have a lot of anxiety about taking over next semester because I have never seen classroom management done well with my class. I've started reading books but so many of the things are things you have to do in the beginning of the year and I'll be taking over mid-year. I am so anxious about taking over these classes next semester and I feel like I don't know what to do.
