I am a new teacher this year, and will be teaching English for 9th grade and 12th grade. Since I am brand new at this, I am looking for any suggestions! Right now I am most concered with: What a syllabi should look like/say How should I go about grading with points? (how to determine how much a project is worth and such..) Procedures for the classroom- (If something is late, heading on a paper, being absent, etc..) A good way to organize if a child is out sick for a day, and any other organization tips you may have And any good "First Day" activities we should do. Any suggestions with these would be a GREAT help! Thank you in advance!
