    I am going to have the opportunity to teach a summer school class in junior high language arts this summer. I will have the students for 2 1/2 hours a day, 5 days a week for 4 weeks. I have already had these students this year--so everything will have to be new material. This will be more of a remedial class and the emphasis will be on reading and vocabulary skills. Any ideas? I would sure appreciate some great ideas. Thank You.

    It would be lots of fun to put on a play.

    seems like a broad question...do you have standards or objectives you need to meet?

    The play is an awesome idea. Just need to work out some authentic assessments. Thanks, since we have to do a standards remediation in our summer school for high school.

    Do they have summer reading books? You may use some of the time to get one of those out of the way.

    A lot of writing can also help with time and to improve their skills. They can work on journals, autobiographies, or other activities that might be fun, such as creating lyrics, their own plays, or poems.
