I want to be a teacher and have scored a long term position as a substitute English teacher. Its a great opportunity, but I could certainly use some help from those out there who are English teachers or are students taking English in high school right now. My biggest problem is figuring out what to do on a day to day basis. Getting discussions going is hard. What kinds of things do you or your teachers do. What do you do every day (obviously we can't be writing an essay every day). How much reading do you do as a class (out loud, etc). If you have any suggestions on things that work well, or things that really don't, I'd really appreciate it.
