Sacramento city schools begin the new year tomorrow. I’m as set as I’m going to be, and it should be a good year. My Intermediate English class has turned into a combination Beginners/Intermediate, including some Beginners with learning challenges, so that class will be interesting 🙂
I’ll also be teaching a double-period ninth-grade English class, Pre-IB ninth-grade English (this one will be a first for me), and an IB Theory of Knowledge class.
Posts might be a little less frequent this month as I get my footing in the new classes, and as I make revisions to the first draft of my forthcoming book, Student Self-Motivation, Responsibility, and Engagement: Practical Answers to Classroom Challenges. I need to get that manuscript squared-away by the end of September.
Good luck with the new school year. I’m looking forward to hearing about your experiences with the beginner and intermediate language learners and those with learning challenges.
