I created most of my viewing guides while home on maternity leave. They are designed strictly as on task activities NOT higher level thinking. I have some additional assignments posted, but please take this into consideration when downloading a viewing guide. I only make 30 cents each off them, but I am learning a lot and will have them ready for me to go back the classroom. =) After teaching Middle School for 6 years, I am took a break to teach Job Corps students resume skills, employment skills and preparing them for their driving tests. In Middle School: I taught US HISTORY and Government for 6 years to 8th graders. I also taught one year of WORLD GEOGRAPHY to 6th graders. 5 of those years I also taught at least one READING ENRICHMENT class. Now, I am a stay at home mom working only part time doing Title 1 tutoring. I currently tutor students from grade 1-9 in Reading and Math near Tampa Florida.
My middle school career was spent at one school with a diverse population. Nearly 70% at risk students. 46% African American, 42% white, and remaining population consisted mostly ELL students. I believe that students learn best though receving information in several forms. A typical class day for me would include: 1. Sponge or warm up activity 2. Information gathering- through text, PowerPoint, or some other information source. 3. Completing an activity to futher understanding of the content learned. 4. Assessment- sometimes 3 and 4 are combined. I believe that ALL KIDS CAN LEARN!

I post occasionally since I still enjoy watching documentaries. If you have an issue with one of my documents, please message me the exact problem and I will fix it. Some of my video guides are as much as 5 years old, so if you aren't exact, then it would require me to watch the entire video again. That probably won't happen anytime soon because I keep a full schedule with two little people at home. I will certainly fix anything pointed out to me. (Copy and paste the error will work.)
