    I think you're going to have to be a bit more specific to get the help you want.

    How, specifically, can we help you?

    What curricular outcomes are you looking for. Social studies, reading and math are still not very specific...

    Do you not have a curriculum to work from? If so, could you let us know what one of the curriculum outcomes are, so that we can help you with a SPECIFIC lesson?

    You teach all subjects to regular kids, who are 12-13, want them to read a novel and count money, and throw in some reading, math and social studies??

    And you want us to help you come up with some good lessons or make your own, just like in college?

    I say you start with Newton's Method, go on implicit differentiation, then go on to integration by parts.

    You said you teach 7th and 8th grade

    And you want your second graders to read a NOVEL??

    And you've listed yourself as a "high school teacher" here:

    So, do you have real students or imaginary? Because at first they were real, but now they seem imaginary.

    :lol:

    I think he is writing lesson plans for a college class and it includes a collaboration of reading text and counting money. I can infer that the theme is about MONEY.

    Right or wrong Mr Math?

    Yeah, those K-12 Certification requirements are a killer!!

    Forgive me for having a laugh at your expense. I'm tired and sore, and you're really just making this too easy.

    PS: "College" doesn't have a "d" in it. And "elementary" has an "a." If you're hoping to attend college and teach elementary school when you finish middle and high school, you'll probably want to know that, as well as the whole grammar thing.

    OK, I'll get off your back. You did have me going for the first post or two. :lol:

    What a "dilima!" After the first post, I was going to reply, "Are you for real?" and I thought better of it. Sometimes my sarcasm gets the better of me but I think it was deserved this time. Wish I had gotten in on this one early. Next time I'll follow my instincts!
