I taught remedial Reading and General English for 10 years at Lincoln High School. I have taught 9th grade Intensive Reading, 9th grade General English, 10th grade Intensive Reading, 10th grade English, 11th grade General English, 11th grade Honors English, and 11th grade Intensive Reading.
I like to use high-interest novels to teach low-interest skills to struggling readers. If I'm going to be bored teaching the material, I know the students are going to be really bored learning it!
