What do you teach and what are y'all up to? We're on the traditional schedule-- start school in mid August and end in late May, so I'm on summer break. I teach 9th grade English and 2 "Applied" classes for 9th-12th IEP'd students with 4-6th grade reading levels. I recently reorganized the Applied class curriculums and have all new resources for use in those classes, so my main task is to plan for those classes, coming up with a general outline for the year and then zeroing in on first semester. I am also (as I always do between school years) mulling over the "what worked" and "what didn't" from last year and coming up with new guidelines and strategies for next year. It seems like every year SOMETHING new comes up So, along with the new stuff I will also be doing the normal pre-year planning (syllabi, rules, letters to parents etc) I just returned from a workshop where we learned how to design classroom reading assessments that are aligned with our state standards and assessments and have lots of great information! I've also got my webpage under construction again. . . . What do you teach and what are y'all up to?
