POPULAR CULTURE IN AN ENGLISH CURRICULUM

SOMETIMES IT’S OK TO STRUGGLE

Helping students develop the confidence to persevere with a challenging task is critical to success in all phases of life. How do you navigate between offering young readers and writers too much help and too little? Are there times when you find yourself challenged in the classroom? How do you satisfy the many demands that are placed on teachers today?
