    Hello!
    I have recently taken my first teaching job in a private middle school. I am teaching social studies to boys only 5,7,8. I am not used to these dynamics and the class is so difficult to manage. I've tried everything that I have learned in college and used throughout my substituting experiences. I have never had this kind of difficulty.

    Some of the students are way below the level they should be. Can anyone please offer me some advice on how I can handle this. I do not want the kids who are trying to lose out on a great learning experience. Thank you!!

    I teach 8th grade social studies and I've got a tough group. To keep it simple, you've got to make expectations clear and be consistent.
