Welcome to Justin Lim's Read 180 High School Class!

By Justin Lim

    Greetings and welcome to my 9th grade English Class at Rosemead High School in the Los Angeles County. This year I will be focusing on a program called Read 180, where I will be addressing the needs of students who are reading two or more grades below grade level. The majority of my students are English Learners and because of this, I’ve come to adapt my teaching strategies to fit their wide range of needs. 

    This year I’ll be exploring strategies that have helped me to engage even the shyest students. We’ll discuss techniques on how to scaffold lessons, differentiate instruction, and develop the type of academic language that our students will need to be successful. 

    Of course, I also know the value of good classroom management. I hope to share with you some of the techniques that I use to create professional and meaningful relationships with my students every year.  Come back and visit often! I know that this year’s going to be another great one and that we can help each other to grow as educators! 

    Warmest Regards,

    Justin Lim

Raising Expectations: Finishing Off Strong

As June approaches, I can always sense the restlessness and anticipation that often creeps up on my students around this time of the year. I always demand the very best effort from my kids and I frequently stress that sometimes the best time to step on the gas is when everybody else is relaxing. In the past, I've been wary of the end of the year drop-off in concentration, so this year, I decided to try something a little different.

School Culture: Impact on Teacher Motivation
  Have you ever attended a professional development seminar or workshop and found yourself nodding your head as you listened to the speaker point out truth after truth of things that you have seen throughout the educational field? A few weeks ago, I experienced just that as Dr. Anthony Muhammad helped me to better understand why school culture can often be so frustrating for motivated teachers. To sum up one of his key points, technical changes such as scheduling, after school programs, and intervention classes cannot truly impact a school if it has a self-defeating culture. When I say school culture, I'm not talking so much about what goes on with students. I'm talking more about us, the staff.

End of Year Assessments

When it comes to assessments, there are generally two schools of thought. Some feel that tests are primarily for the purpose of assigning a comprehensive grade, while others see them more as ways to guide instruction.
