I have a job for this fall teaching 7th grade math, some sections of pre-algebra and some of pre-algebra advanced. Before school was out for summer I was able to get all the textbooks and materials, but I'm uncertain how to prepare. I don't know the exact curriculum difference between the two levels, I don't know if I'll have my own classroom or what my schedule will be, and I don't know what the pacing will be. I won't know any of this until a week or two before school starts! I did my student teaching at the high school level, so middle school will be new for me. I'm a brand-new teacher and I like to be prepared, but I don't know where to start! Any words of wisdom for me? Should I be working away this summer, or just relax until I have more info?
