Hi all! Another question! I'm teaching a reading elective next year for 7th grade. This is for kids with an extra class to fill. I taught the 6th grade version of this last year. I'm coming to you with questions on how the actual time is spent (I have curriculum and activities ready to go) For those of you who teach reading: 1. Do you assign homework or projects (or both)? Last year it was a standard reading log that parents and students filled out together. I might want something different. 2. How is your class period set up? (we have 50 minutes) 3. Do you have silent reading time daily? Weekly? at all? 4. Anything interesting, neat or new you can suggest to me to jazz up the class?!?! Thanks!
