Help! I'm teaching 6th grade next year!
I came into education thinking I wanted to teach high school, but I interned in a middle school and loved it. I've taught 45 minute periods of 7th and 8th grade ELA for the past three years, but I just accepted a job teaching 90 minute blocks of 6th grade ELA next year. I think I'm worried most about adapting my instruction to a 6th grade level and engaging kids that age. Any suggestions to people who have taught 6th grade?
