My class this year is very different from any class I've had before. I have many students that are just low. And a majority of my students are extremely lazy. Just an example, we read Charlie & the Chocolate Factory together as a class. I created a reading journal for students to complete while reading with chapter summaries, character traits, setting pictures & descriptions, and a critical thinking section with writing prompts. This unit expanded over the nine weeks. We finished reading the book last week. Over half of my two classes didn't even turn one in. Many that did, turn ed them in only partially completed! Well, it's come time for report cards, and my students' grades are horrible! Even though none of the grades are undeserved (I've checked twice just to be sure), I still feel bad. At this point, I only have two students with honor roll, but the grades don't include their math, science, or spelling scores yet (taught by another teacher). Those scores may eliminate those two from honor roll, and then I don't have any!
