So I am moving from elementary to Jr. High school. I am used to planning subjects with a general time limit (it's ok to run over because I taught them all subjects, so it didn't affect anyone else). However, I am moving to Jr. High where I will be teaching 6th and 7th Language Arts and Social Studies, and 7th Math. I'm not as worried about math as I am about Language Arts. We have 45 minutes per block. I DO have Lang Arts and SS back to back, which helps a little, especially with integration. However, I have no idea how a 45 minute lesson looks. I need to cover grammar, writing and reading (from novels, to short stories and a Literature book). Does anyone have a template or some ideas for me to get started? I am currently in Paraguay, but teaching according to Georgia standards (but this is also very flexible). There is no team for me to teach with so I can't really get ideas from anyone here. I would so appreciate any help. Our break is short - we go back at the end of July. Thank you!!!!!
