This is my thirteenth year teaching and by far my most challenging year. My principal literally stacked my third grade class with all the academic low students and the behavior problems. I spoke with her this morning and she started saying how I was such a strong teacher....so I get the ALL the unmotivated children who don't want to learn, ALL the low learners who need extra support? I have no idea how I'm going to get through this year, let alone get them ready for state testing in March. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to teach when the majority of the class is either disruptive or significantly below grade level? I could handle one or the other but the unmotivated and disruptive ones are hurting the low ones ability to learn. Any advice is appreciated!
