In a few weeks, I will be teaching 7th and 8th grade English. I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips on how to manage/balance lessons and materials when teaching two different grade levels. How can I plan for both grades in a timely manner? Both groups should be different. I know they will be learning some of the same material, but the depth of knowledge will definitely be different. What is the best way to juggle the two? I may even be teaching one section of 6th grade. Also, what tips can you give me on decorating the classroom?
