Hi, I'm a first-year Intervention Specialist. I currently teach at a Catholic high school, running what they call the Academic Support Program. Basically, it's a "resource room" where different groups of kids come in each period w/their work from other classes. It's supposed to be a place where they can do hw, get help, study for tests, etc. ...this is quite difficult though, as all the students are in different grades (9-12) mixed up, all in different classes, VERY different levels of ability, etc. And it's just me w/up to 10 students who are all doing different things at different time and seem to need help at exactly the same moments :) Just checking to see if anyone in the discussion group teaches in this type of setting...resource room, etc, and if anyone can share ideas, tips, etc. for engaging the students, motivating them to do their homework for 88 minute blocks (crazy, I know!!). I'd especially love creative ideas for activities I can do with ALL the students to build vocab/comprehension skills that would somehow work w/the mixed grade levels/classes. Thanks!!
