ELA lessonb plans
I am an ELA teacher in a juvenile detention center in Rome, GA. I need help coming up with lesson plans to meet the GA standards. I was a math teacher at another detention center before they closed down, and I didn't have as much trouble coming up with lesson plans. I think part of my problem is that I'm not really an ELA guy. This was the only position that was open and I really wanted to get back to teaching in DJJ, If there is anyone that can help me come up with some constructive lessons to keep the kids engaged from "bell to bell" I would really appreciated it. Most of these kids are street kids and don't have the desire to learn, but some do. Thanks.
