sorry another question (by the way I actually bellowed with laughter - I want to be a wizard too)

Did you use the normal banner submission option that everyone uses on the dashboard - aka "dress up your store?" If so how is the link hidden so that I see a pretty banner ONLY and no link?

Sorry to hit you with another set of questions... If you get around to it.

I think it works like Pinterest; your image becomes the link to a page. In the case of the banner, that page is the product you want to highlight.

Angie, your newest follower from the TpT forum ElA only pinning board. Question: are you a magician or a wizard? How did you put a link in your banner to a product??
Ooohhh, let me know? When you have time. Love your products, from one ELA-er to another, Gina (PerfettoWritingRoom)

Hey, Gina! It seems like I created the banner and submitted it for approval on a form that had a space for a link. I think I started with the banner thingie on my dashboard. The button on my banner is fake; a buyer can click anywhere.

...and yes, I am both a wizard and a magician.

Buyer re: AP English SYNTAX Unit
i purchased the bundle, but i don't see this syntax unit included, something according to "A Better Buy", would be. can you clarify which part the $55 bundle includes this syntax bundle. thank you angie, i am very happy with the bundle. do you have an order that you would use the material in the big bundle? it is arranged alphabetically, not chronologically. thank you- that would be a big help. debbie m
November 15, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Angie Kratzer
Angie Kratzer  (TpT Seller)
Debbie, these are great questions!

The syntax "bundle" is actually a chunk of the style analysis unit. I simply pulled the lessons and handouts straight out of the unit in the same order and created the bundle (probably a misnomer).

I always start the year with The Things They Carried and Elements of Style (our summer reading assignments) and use those to introduce style analysis. Once I have taught tone, I begin using the 100 Shades of Tone materials. Those words become my word wall and weekly vocabulary. Once we're done with style analysis, my next big chunk is the rhetorical mode project, and then I move on to a large argumentation and persuasion unit. You'll see this order on the syllabus. I would pull pieces from the question stem product as we hit those specific works of literature. The other pieces drop in as students need them. Some can be used as initial instruction materials, and some might simply be review. You've inspired me to include a suggested order when I add to this bundle.

There is a large argumentation and persuasion unit on the way, and I hope to have it uploaded before Thanksgiving. You'll get it for free since you've already purchased the bundle, and I'll alert you once the new zip file is up.

Thanks for the purchase!

I had a hard time getting the files to compress last night, and it looks like I was not quite successful. Let me figure out what's going on.

Later...

I just went in as a buyer and was able to open the zip file and extract all seven files. I wonder if you need WinRar to be able to open it. I've emailed you the files.

Actually not a question, but I wanted to let you know...

I downloaded the preview of your points of view paper (the one with the descriptions and pictures). The preview opens up in powerpoint and the black preview box can easily be deleted. I did not keep the item b/c I feel that it is necessary to pay people for the work that they are selling, however, it is possible for someone to keep that resource without paying. You might want to change the preview document to a pdf so the buyer can not see all the words/print it right out etc. Let me know if you have questions about this.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have enjoyed 23 years in education, including 18 in the high school English classroom and three years as a 6-12 ELA curriculum specialist for the third largest school district in North Carolina. Currently, I am working from home as a freelance writer and mom.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My strength is my ability to build rapport with my students, so my lessons are very relational; conferencing, cooperative grouping, pair work, and seminars are common elements of my lessons. I tend to script my own lesson plans, so my published materials are ready to be used in the classroom.
