      With language, I like to have some structure to my week but I am not tied to it. I do grammar once a week but use errors in the students' work to shape my lessons. At the beginning of the other days they either do a speed writing exercise or journal on two of the days and silent reading(novel of their choice unless we are doing a class novel) on the other two. During these four days, I follow the writing or reading with my main lesson (e.g., unit on short stories or essay writing etc.). I hope that helps.
