easy to say

I am definitely having difficulty in keeping up with my scheduled teaching of the magnificent seven. It's easy to say as an English teacher I work with "the 7" all of time. However, it takes more time to explicitly teach it. And therein lies my problem, I cannot seem to find time for the "I do, we do, you do" of it all. As this is my first year teaching 11th and 12th grade it has been a chore studying and planning for these classes and adding the 7 on top of that. However, as I am pressing through it, I do see it getting easier.

  1. I have two new preps as well...Eng 11 and a Pre AP Eng 10. I share in your overwhelmed feelings. I worked really hard first nine weeks to explicitly teach the Magnificient 7...but have felt bogged down as the semester progressed. Hang in there!
