Okay, so I was doing well with Read180, but now I’m overwhelmed. I’m watching what is going on and seeing where my mistakes are but now I need to be able to plan better than I am.
I need to: switch up the small groups; do a group lesson on the point of Read180; explain the goal; explain what needs to happen to get out of class; separate all the pairs of friends; create seating charts for both small groups and while they are on the computers (the computers!!!!), plan better whole group lessons; try not to beat my head against a wall.
Also, I need to grade like a wild thing. Maybe at home tonight, I’ll have a me, my headphones, and my desk night. That does not sound enjoyable. And it isolates me from the wife. Sometimes a teacher’s work is never done.
