I have a 9th & 10th grade class that focuses on Career Education and Life Skills. Over the summer I prepared my lessons and felt good about everything......................well, things are not going so well. The students are so much further behind than expected and now instead of "friendly letters" we are doing "capitalization and punctuation". I feel lost and not knowing what to do. I mean, obviously I am re-tracking and scrambling to find things that they can handle, but it is so frustrating! Is anyone else in this type of a program? What kinds of things are you doing with your students? Any suggestions?
