I teach a Middle/High School Social Studies class.  The students I teach ranges in age from 12-20.  Their grade level ranges from 7th-12th grade.  Each class begins with a 15 minute “brain pop” addressing state standards as they relate to social studies.  We also differentiate instruction to meet the needs of the students we teach, being that it is a co-taught classroom setting.
