I do understand your pain, my older ds had the hardest time with math until he got to Algebra and then he got A's.

Maggie~

I taught for 8 years (from 7th-10th grade Eng/Rdg/ESL and coached freshmen cheerleading...now that's crazy...and I teach 3 days/wk now at a community college)...here is how I have to think of teaching. If a class was 50 mintues I would have to break it down. So it would end up being 10 minute warm-up activity, 15 min of writing, maybe 15 of reading lit and then remaining time discussing it. Of course you can change it up but it really seemed as though 20 min was probably the max time spent on any one activity. Students (even those at the college level...and I have straight from high through non-traditional students) seem to work a little better when it's constantly changing.

Just an idea~
