I have spent the past 30 years teaching math to middle school kids. The bulk of those years was spent with 6th graders. I have a lot of experience with students of an extremely wide range of abilities and have had success across multi-grade levels. I specialize in identifying areas in which students will struggle and creating assignments that will address these issues.
Lesson presentation, guided practice, assess, independent practice or cooperative work, re-assess, repeat as necessary. I believe in small incremental assessments given often, which build confidence before larger assessments. Students should learn the objective before moving on to new objectives. I believe in incorporating spiral review weekly, if not daily, throughout the year!
