Good morrow, everyone! I'm having a bit of a pickle with something. For my first period class, it goes by at a glacial pace. We end up finishing early most days and we are left over with 20-25 minutes. May God forgive me. I'm a new teacher and I'm Alternate Route, so I didn't have any background in education. We are currently reading Macbeth, and I want us to work until the bell rings. That is my true dream. I want to be a teacher that keeps her class working for the entire 45 minutes. Do you think I'll get better at pacing when I practice? It's hard for me to stay after school because I live an hour and a half away from my school, and once the final bell rings, I have to run home to beat traffic and pick up my niece. Do you know of any good guides for pacing an English class? It would mean the world to me. Thank you so much.
