    I have 2 boys in my classroom, both in seventh grade, but with reading levels of a kindergartener/1st grader. How do I teach them Social Studies/Science without making them feel embarrased or like "little" kids? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    here are my ideas: (before hand let some students who are up to the appropriate reading levels that they are your "special helpers", while not in front of the general class)

    (1) general reading outloud by instructor (about 1 paragraph)

    (2) then 1 or 2 volunteers (or those you know how to read at their respective level)

    (3) finally, breaking the class up into groups where the students who are at a higher level can help those on lower levels (as they already know to help the students lacking)

    -------
    hope that helps.
