Hello, I teach 7th grade ELA.. This year in my last block of the day, I have a high amount of boys (25 boys to 11 girls). I am overwhelmed with the energy, the lack of focus, and the overall lack of interest in reading and writing. I am in need of strategies and lessons that will help my boys 'buy into' my class, and lessons or ways to use their energy rather than fight it. Thank you.
