Hi! I am returning to education in a NEW capacity after being a stay-at-home mom for many years. I was a "regular" high school English teacher for 10 years before I left teaching; now I am beginning a BRAND NEW job as a Special Education English Resource teacher. My first day of school (with the students) is only a few days away (this Tuesday), I have had NO training, and I am freaking out Can someone please help me??? I will be teaching 10th - 12th grade English to extremely low level learners; some can't even read. They aren't mentally retarded (politically incorrect, I know), just severely learning disabled and some "emotionally disturbed". So here are my questions: 1. What are some some first day/first week introduction activities I can do with them??? 2. What are some warm-ups I can do? 3. What is an appropriate daily routine and/or class procedures? (Each period is 45 minutes long). Thanks SO much in advance for anyones help!
