I have been teaching English Language Arts for almost 19 years at the middle school level. I teach three levels of classes - one level for students who need a slower pace, many of whom are on IEP's, a second level which is a "middle ground" with a heterogenous mix, and a third level which includes gifted students (18 of whom are superior cognitive).
I try to teach in a fun but structured way so that the students know that they can enjoy themselves while still being held to a high standard.
