So I am linking up with Where the Wild Things Learn to share my schedule :)
I start my day with Zero period [This semester is my first time teaching a zero period]. This should be ok though because it's honors kids and they usually* like school and can self-start.
From there my day is pretty repetitive, alternating English 10 and Honors. Then the last period of the day is my English Support class which I created/designed for 9th/10th grade students struggling in English class. We will spend the first 6 weeks preparing for the CAHSEE [California High School Exit Exam], which all 10th graders take. Students must pass this by their senior year in order to receive a diploma.
And you are reading my schedule correctly: I have no prep period. Our school runs an accelerated program and the "normal" school day is 4 classes. I've always taught all four, but now adding the 5th period seems a little hectic with no prep. I am going to recruit a TA for every period!! LOL Hopefully they can get all my little grading stuff done, leaving me with the bigger items that require more attention.
What does your schedule look like next semester? And does anyone else teach with no prep? Any tips??
