I have 20+ years teaching English and history, mostly middle school but junior college and adults too. I used to teach a two-hour block of English and history which was really a really fun, interdisciplinary experience. I taught world history and American history, and I integrated all of the skills together. Now, I teach three double-block periods of 8th grade English.
interdisciplinary, structured yet creative, multicultural
