I have always taught in the upper grades, but just moved to middle school. I worked in a low income area with tons of below grade level students. My usual Literature routine was Mon- listen to story, Tues- popcorn read, wed- choral read, Thurs partner read, Fri silent read, quiz. This was just for one story. Can any of you out there give me hints on your usual language arts routine? It would be greatly appreciated.
