I am looking for an assignment for viewing the movie O after reading Othello. I noticed that your packet mentions one. I was wondering if there is any way I could purchase that assignment separately.

I was just suggesting it for your own use - sometimes schools can't afford to replace (well, usually!). But I've found it helpful so that I can point out the discrepancies to my students. Just suggesting two editions I've found to be especially good in hopes that you'd find these useful. Best wishes!

Thank you! I can understand "Bernardo" being changed to "Barnardo," but not "Claudius" to "Cladius." You might want to check out an authoritative edition of the play such as the highly-respected Folger edition, or even the Prestwick House, a very good, very inexpensive, highly accurate volume of the play. Thank you again. I changed it in the Word document for my own use. I appreciate your very quick response!

I usually use the school library for this assignment. Last year I used the laptops and without any guidance they were able to find the answers quickly. I teach high school and I want them to learn how to conduct research on their own. If you want I can make a list of websites but I think there's more rigor when they do it on their own.

Hi there!

As you may know, Pinterest has recently started a board called Teachers on Pinterest (http://www.pinterest.com/teachers/). Once limited to the primary grades, Pinterest added a board dedicated to High School English and they have been kind enough to let me invite others to this board. Would you like to pin to this board? If so, follow me on Pinterest (http://www.pinterest.com/openclass/) and I’ll add you to the board. Pinterest didn’t offer any pinning guidelines, except for detailed descriptions but I think a good rule of thumb for the board is to pin one paid product to one (or more!) helpful or free products.

This is a great opportunity for the high school sellers!

It means stop. The man is in the pushing position and that implies that he's trying to stop something. The red octogon itself is widely known for being both the shape and color of a stop sign. If you think it's too difficult you can replace it with another picture or remove it entirely. It's a Word document so you can alter it.

Tracee,

You know your students better than I do. I don't know if they're advanced, special ed, ELL, etc. In my opinion Romeo and Juliet is easier to understand than some of the other plays. You can also get adapted versions like Shakespeare Made Easy which will have the original language on one side and the modern version on the other side. I've used those before.

Unfortunately I haven't had the time to create answer keys for everything in this extensive package. My Hamlet unit is currently the only unit in the Shakespeare package that has answer keys. I plan on adding them but it will take some time. I'm going to be teaching Macbeth in the Spring so that will be the next unit that I'm going to add answer keys for. If you have any other questions just let me know.

Most sellers have a short preview on their products. It's optional but most people do it. If you want to see more than is shown in preview just leave me your email address.

Buyer re: Othello by William Shakespeare - Handouts, Activities and More
i'm looking for a unit for a 10 honors class--I really want a lot of higher level thinking and discussion questions. Would you say that this unit has that, or is it a basic college prep unit?

I've used this unit with both 11th and 12th grade classes in the past. My classes are always mixed levels. Did you download the preview? If you want I can email you a sample of some of the questions I use for Othello. Let me know.

Buyer re: Activities and Handouts for the book Go Ask Alice
I teach the GED to inmates at a local detention center and thought this would be a good read for us. Most are in for drugs and have struggled with it their whole lives, and many are not good readers. A book store was going out of business and I found these copies there. Do you think this is a good unit for them? I am really thinking the memoir assignment is a great project.

Thanks!

You know your students better than I do. I have used this book several times with high school students. I have a lot of students who hate to read and they got into the book because it's such a crazy story. During the course of the book she runs away from home twice, gets raped and becomes a prostitute. She also sells drugs to kids. I know that some teachers are not comfortable with these topics. She does every drug from pot to acid in this book. It's a pretty easy book to read but the topic is controversial. You can have them write a memoir at the end about something that changed the course of their lives.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught middle school for 2 years. I'm currently in my 12th year of teaching high school English. I've also taught two courses on the college level and I did that for seven years. I have taught creative writing and public speaking electives in addition to regular English classes. This year I'm teaching AP English for the first time.

I decided to change the name of my store to Juggling ELA. I always feel like I'm doing a metaphorical juggling act. As an ELA teacher I need to teach novels, short stories, plays, poetry, different genres of writing, grammar, vocabulary, etc. I also feel like I'm teaching social studies some days with all the background information I need to know for the various works of literature. I've worked hard in the last 14 years and now I'm trying to help other ELA teachers through TpT. If you have any questions or suggestions let me know JugglingELA@gmail.com
