There seems to be countless ways to build in grammar/vocabulary into the curriculum. How do you all approach it and keep it as engaging as possible? Thanks, and have a great school year!!

How does that work? Do you still teach a grammar concept? For what grades, is it appropriate?

Julie Faulkner has an awesome system on TPT. I caught her grammar bundle during the BTS sale and will be trying that with my kids this year (11th grade). It includes a weekly schedule for alternating daily practice, applied practice, and assessments.

I have used Jane Bell Kiester's "Caught Ya" series that helps with both proper grammar in writing and gives new vocabulary words. My 8th graders enjoy the story line and definitely have improved their writing with it. After using it a few years I have changed/added to the storyline and changed/added vocabulary based on the class make-up.

I’m now on 15 mg Adderall, but it feels like I can’t concentrate and I’m scattered. Question in comments:

For the first time in a long time, I am excited to teach something new! I replaced The Crucible as my drama unit with Hamilton. My kids are stoked to be reading something modern (even if it is about an old dead guy)! Any one else out here teaching Lin-Manuel Miranda's play to your high school students?

I’m really tired of R&J and they get tragedies in other grades. BTW-It bugs me that I can’t italicize book titles on this app. I’m I the only one?

Hi everyone! Looking for feedback / suggestions. (6th Grade) I want to do a class read aloud & have students discuss different components & comp skills (types of conflicts, analyzing characters, etc…) but I feel like the high ones will be the only ones who talk, or the students will get off task & talk about other things. Any ideas on how I can gauge understanding w/o them just writing the answers down? I’m looking for a balance of open discussion & accountability.

The skills & academic stamina of students in adv. classes are the lowest my colleagues and I have ever seen across ALL subjects. Students also seem not to care about the quality of their work, goal setting, & improvement like they did pre-C-19. Being back in person for a year has not erased the learning losses; in fact, this group is worse off than last year’s classes. Do you see this trend in your advanced programs? I wonder if it’s a district curriculum & philosophy issue or more widespread.
