So this will be my 3rd year teaching. My first year I taught 5th grade, last year I taught 6th grade advanced reading at a different school, and now the same school (6-12th grade) wants me to teach intensive high school reading. I'm an elementary ed major so all of my work in college was with students in the k-5th grade range. The oldest I've ever taught is 6th grade which is very similar to 5th grade. What are some helpful tips that you HS teachers can give me? What are the biggest differences? What do I need to know? What do I need to do differently with room decoration? School starts in about 3 weeks so I'm a little overwhelmed with what I need to do (especially since I wanna take the GRE before the school year starts but that's another story).
