Most of the links to the articles in Readings on Poe’s Death: Lesson Focused on Non Fiction Skills do not work. Do you have hard copies of the articles that I may use? We are covering Poe now and I would like to use parts of these activities as a culminating assignment.

The articles are all published by the New York Times so if you search for the titles of the articles through Google or directly through the NYT the articles should come up.

I checked the links and they all work through the Word document, but not the PDF so I am just removing the PDF version of the file. Thanks for letting me know!

If you are looking for more materials on theme, check out my lessons on Name Readings (2 texts for comparison) and "Cut" Readings (five short texts for comparison).

Also, most of my sets of quizzes follow that format of 7 questions and a short response, but use just one passage.

Hi there -

I downloaded the Most Dangerous Game lesson and it had some odd stuff with it. There was not a powerpoint, but a flip chart or some program I don't have. Also, there was not an actual lesson. There was also something about stations with sequencing and "Goldilocks and the three bears", but nothing else about the stations? Perhaps I missed something? I am really thankful for the adopted version!

Thanks!

These articles could be used anywhere from 6th through 12th grade depending on your students' reading levels. An adapted version of each article is included that I use with my students who read at a 3rd , 4th, or 5th grade reading levels.

The readings and responses meet the following standards: RI.9-10.1, RI.9-10.2, W.9-10.2, and W.9-10.4. These standards are the 9-10 versions but have equivalents in lower and higher grade levels.

I'm looking for more non fiction pieces like these for the CCS we start next year. I was hoping the Holocaust articles would have been the same format and possibly a higher level.

I purchased the non - fiction package the other day and just downloaded the Holocaust one. I am disappointed this package does not include questions like the previous. It is not major deal but it was not indicated in the description and its just another thing I have to do in order to use the material. I just tried the JFK one today it went over well in class.

Which JFK one did you purchase from me? Could you be a little more specific? The JFK Assassination readings or the JFK web quest and research paper?

All of my Nonfiction Homework Readings & Responses (I have 4 different sets posted) are structured the same. There are 10 articles and a set of 6 sentence starters so that students can write their own responses. There are no questions included in any of these because it requires students to choose a part of the text to focus on and respond to.

Hope this clarification helps. Thanks!

Lisa,
The two units use different poems. The unit titled "Poetry Unit Plan with Poetry Analysis and Projects" uses a graphic organizer for analysis, rather than line by line questions (requires the students to be more independent). The unit also has two choices of projects at the end. The unit titled "Poetry Unit Plan with Writing Activities and Assessments" has line by line type of questions focused on specific terms and the unit culminates with an exam. There is some overlap between the two units with the warmups and homework materials. Let me know if further explanation would be helpful.

Buyer re: "Through the Tunnel" Lesson Focused on Theme and Symbolism
I just bought the packet and wanted to know--do you have an answer key for the Read Along and Symbolism Practice Menu documents? Also do you have notes to accompany the Power Point? There is also a document called "Notes" that I can't open.
Thanks,
Kathy West

Kathy,
There is an answer key for the quiz, but not for the read along or symbolism practice menu. If you can wait until the weekend, I could make them for you. Creating complete answer keys for all my materials is going to be a summer project. The PowerPoint and the "Notes" flipchart are the same thing, just saved two different ways. I use a guided notetaking sheet with my students which you can download for free.
Thanks,
Brynn Allison

Yes, for the quizzes. Some of my POV quizzes (you also asked about them) are included in this pack.
Thanks,

Do you have answer keys for all of the questions/assignments?

There are answer keys for all of the assessments, but not for all of the classwork assignments and activities. Over the summer I hope to create more thorough answer keys for many of my products.
Thanks,

Kathryn Borgfeldt  (TpT Seller) re: "RMS Titanic" Lesson Focused on Irony and Informational Texts
Brynn, I really love this activity and I cannot wait to use it! I am also having trouble opening the flipcharts and also was unable to download ActivInspire. Maybe there is no longer a free version? Is there any way you can post the content of the flip charts in a different format? Thank you for looking into it.

The flipcharts and PowerPoints are the same, just saved in different versions. I did add the links for the videos to the PowerPoints to make them easier to find. I think it would be a copyright issue if I actually included them.
Thanks,

I purchased your Titanic unit. Where do I find the video clips that you reference?

Brynn Allison  (TpT Seller)
All the video clips can be found on Youtube. I used three: one is a slideshow of the ship's interior, one is an animated recreation of the ship hitting the ice berg and sinking, and one is a clip from James Cameron's "Titanic" of the ship filling with water and sinking.

Buyer re: Readings on Poe’s Death: Lesson Focused on Non Fiction Skills
Hi, Does this lesson include the readings, or do I have to have a copy of the Holt?
Thanks!

The lesson does not include the readings as that would be a copyright issue, but if you have a Holt Login, you can access all of the grade level textbooks online. The initial reading, "Poe's Final Days" is not online elsewhere, but I provide an adapted version of that text. The other three articles are all available online through the New York Times. Hope that helps!
Thanks,

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching in urban schools in Philadelphia for the past 6 years. I have primarily taught ninth and tenth grade so many of my materials reflect Philadelphia's Planning and Scheduling Timeline for those grades.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Much like Winnie the Pooh I believe that you must bring the learning to the student rather than expect the student to always come to the learning. In an attempt to bring the learning to my students, this year I have been focused on increasing my differentiation of instruction, so you will be seeing more stations, menus, choice boards, etc. I usually begin my week with direct instruction on skills/terms with guided and independent practice built in. I then move onto a weekly reading followed by a text based assessment. I end my week with a writing assignment or extension activity. Many of my materials include 2 or more level of adaptations as I frequently work with low level readers.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

The privilege of being a part of my students' lives is all the honor I need.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I completed my undergraduate and graduate studies at Temple University.
