Hey all, I was wondering if there were any tips that you could give me as I head into my semester of student teaching? I'm going to be placed at a junior high school teaching 7th-8th grade social studies (American history for both, maybe some other stuff... haven't heard from the teacher yet). I will also be doing a 3 1/2 week part in Dublin for some international experience at a Catholic boy's school... that part has me extremely nervous since I have no idea what Irish social studies classes are like. Anyway... tips? Warnings of what not to do? Experiences with international teaching? Anything helps.
