I got a last minute offer to teach 9/10 English. I have been teaching 6-8th English years. School starts in 2 weeks. My dept chair will not be in town until next week, so I cannot get any planning materials until then. So, what can I do this week? My classroom is not ready yet. And for those who have made the transition, what differences should I expect? What should I be prepared for? I know I'll be fine in the end, but my head is spinning a bit right now. Any advice or help is welcome! Thank you! Harper *For those concerned about my leaving old job last minute, don't worry, I didn't. I moved out of area, so the old job was already finished and we left on great terms.
