Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed how to ease the grading load and classroom activities to use when you need a break from the paper pile. Teachers also shared strategies to help manage stress. Read through the chat for ideas to implement in your own classroom.

Read through the chat below for ways to spend less time marking papers. You'll get ideas about hands-on activities, speaking and listening activities, reading activities, and technology activities that are fun for students and low or no prep for you. You'll also find advice on how to avoid new teacher burnout.

Hope you'll join us on Tuesday March 28th to discuss supporting struggling readers and writers in the ELA classroom. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, resource links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
