Hi I like your resources. I notice you do a lot with metacomprehension. I would like to begin doing the same but my question is, is it okay to retype a chapter and then create a column for the guided reading questions? Obviously you've done exactly that and it's not a problem but I want to make sure I'm not missing some kind of disclaimer about that :)

Hi!
For all of the metacomprehension lessons, I got the text online somewhere, which made me think it was fine to do so! I *think* I put the web link on all of these lessons to show where I got the chapter's text. To be honest, I'm not entirely certain about this - or if I should be including disclaimers - but, again, since I took the text from the web already, I think it is fine. If you find out something different, I would appreciate you letting me know! :) Thanks for your inquiry and compliment!
Best,
Emily

Rachel E. re: Adventures of Tom Sawyer-Chapter 8 and Chapter 9 Comprehension
I noticed you sell chapter segments for Tom Sawyer that look GREAT! I teach 6th grade, and this is an exemplar text for us, however, you don't include grade 6 in your description. Is there a reason why it's not intended for 6th? Could the units be modified? Just curious... Oh, also, we recently finished creating a curriculum map aligned with ccss. The longest amount of time we are allowed to spend on a novel unit is 3 weeks. Do you think the entire book and lessons could be taught in that span of time? Or, better yet, do you think any particular chapters or portions of the book lend themselves well to a shortened unit?

Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry, but I do not have a sample essay for either of these questions! I did not have the students submit them electronically, and I have since given them all back. I apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for purchasing! Please let me know if you have any more questions. Best,

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught language arts to both seventh- and eighth-grade students for over five years now. I have spent hours upon hours creating and fine-tuning my lesson plans, so that they are engaging and effective!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I want my students to be fully engaged at all times! In fact, I feel personally obligated to make each period one of discovery and critical thinking. This means that my lessons are always differentiated: I always consider multiple ability ranges, as well as learning styles (kinesthetic, visual, etc.) when I create them. I also anticipate a middle-school mindset and the interests of the students - for example, what will make them tick, what will wow them, what will "get them talking" as they leave. Essentially, no class is hum drum, no lesson is a "filler"! My lessons posted on this site are always extremely detailed - including even suggested dialogue and questions - and extensive.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was recognized by my principal for presenting "brilliant, innovative, robust, and creative" lesson plans - ones that fully engaged my students at all times. I also won the district’s Technology Excellence in the Classroom award and the Tech 2005 award, a statewide honor in which I presented a technology initiative at the Illinois capitol. I was also selected to be the Chairperson of our school’s Language Arts Committee, which was responsible for overhauling our curriculum. Our charge included spearheading educational issues and adopting a new textbook, scope, and sequence, among other initiatives. I have also led several workshops during in-service days, including one on engaging reading practices. Finally, I led the Creative Writing Club and co-led the Newspaper Club and have helped many students win writing and vocabulary awards!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated magna cum laude at Miami University in Ohio, majoring in both Psychology and Sociology. I then went on to receive my Masters in Teaching at National-Louis University in Illinois, graduating summa cum laude. I have attended a slew of workshops and conferences, including ones sponsored by the Illinois Reading Council and the Secondary Reading League, as well as other local professional development opportunities. I have also read and researched a great deal on how to be an effective educator!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I live in Chicago, IL; I have been married four years; I have a one-year old son.
