Greetings and welcome to my 9th grade English Class at Rosemead High School in the Los Angeles County. This year I will be focusing on a program called Read 180, where I will be addressing the needs of students who are reading two or more grades below grade level. The majority of my students are English Learners and because of this, I’ve come to adapt my teaching strategies to fit their wide range of needs.
This year I’ll be exploring strategies that have helped me to engage even the shyest students. We’ll discuss techniques on how to scaffold lessons, differentiate instruction, and develop the type of academic language that our students will need to be successful.
Of course, I also know the value of good classroom management. I hope to share with you some of the techniques that I use to create professional and meaningful relationships with my students every year. Come back and visit often! I know that this year’s going to be another great one and that we can help each other to grow as educators!
