Second year teacher here! However, this is my first year having a considerably low class. I teach 6th and 7th grade Reading/ELA, and one of my 6th grade reading classes is very low. None of them are on IEPs, but many of them tested at the very bottom and struggle with basic recall questions, let alone inferencing and citing textual evidence. I'm struggling because when we do reading assignments, it often leads to discipline issues because they don't understand, and several students want my help at once, and if I don't get to them right away, they start talking and getting off task. Please, please, please give me suggestions!
