I have been teaching multiple subjects in the middle grades for 13 years in Georgia and in Tennessee. As a current middle school Science teacher, I have taught all three grade levels and disciplines as well as Reading. I also teach professional development classes on classroom management and will soon be an instructor for Reading Literacy in Science for the state of Tennessee.
I personally believe that productive struggle is the key to learning. The majority of the time, my students are doing and discussing content not writing and memorizing. When students are challenged daily to complete the task at hand, they tend to retain a lot more of the information.
