Kathleen S. re: Common Core: Comparing Multiple Sources, Same Subject
I need something like this for my fifth and sixth graders! Are you planning on creating it for these students or know any other TPT'er that has something similar?

Julie Rine  (TpT Seller)
I'm afraid I would not be very effective at creating an activity for 5th and 6th graders; I've taught high school for my entire career, mostly juniors. I don't even know another TPT'er who might have that since the ones I follow are mostly high school teachers. I'm afraid I'm not much help! You could try the section where you can request materials. Some TPTers create custom made work on request. Hope you can find something!
Best wishes!

Hi - I purchased the non-fiction pre / post test yesterday. I am having a hard time locating the cartoon that accompanies the gun violence article. Could you forward me the cartoonist's name, a date, etc. so I can try to locate it?? Thanks so much!!

First, please accept my apologies for not getting back to you sooner! So sorry I didn't realize I had a question to answer. Try this link:
http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=gun+violence+political+cartoons+gun+shooting+itself&go=&qs=n&form=QBIR&pq=gun+violence+political+cartoons+gun+shooting+itself&sc=0-0&sp=-1&sk=#view=detail&id=0AFCC115772A54C98F6281D4D43B8414923DB497&selectedIndex=98

Hopefully that will work. If not, google gun violence political cartoons and look for the image of a gun with the barrel curved and pointing back at itself. It says on the barrell "We need more guns to protect us from rising gun violence.". Hope that helps!

Julie, does it include a key? This looks great!
August 9, 2013 Report inappropriate comment

Julie Rine  (TpT Seller)
Yes, it does. There is a key for both of the reading assessments and a rubric broken down very specifically for the writing assessments. This is what I use for my student assessments that show growth during the year, which factors into my evaluation score, so I've tried to make it as fair and yet user friendly (for me!) as possible. :-)

Is this based on McDougal Littell's American Literature textbook?

No, we use Holt Rinehart Winston. We have used them for a few years, but we previously used McDougal, so many of the authors I mention in the pacing guide appear in both.

Buyer re: 11th grade Lang Arts Curriculum/Pacing Guide - Common Core Standards
Hi! I found you by googling English III lesson plans using the common core standards. I am starting my second year teaching an Eng III Resource class. My first year I just googled my lesson plans because my students were on a much lower reading/comp level than a typical 11th grader. We are doing the pilot common core standards in our county and will implement full scale next year. I have a scope and sequence from my county using the new Holt McDougal Elements of Literature. I am trying to find lessons that will supplement this or be easier to teach to special ed students in 11th grade. What types of lessons do you offer in your guide? Thanks!

We use Holt Rinehart Winston.
I have to apologize for not getting back to you! I got an email from TpT today saying I had a question, and when I sent to this page, I also found your question from last summer. I am so sorry! I hope you had a great year.
I will suggest this... I read Notice and Note by Kylene Beers and Robert Probst this summer and it is WONDERFUL! I am going to use it with my freshmen. I think it would be perfect for an Eng III Resource class. They describe six "signposts" for kids to look for when reading a story/novel, and then a question to ask themselves for each signpost. It is a quick read, but I think so very practical. I can't wait to use the info this year in my own teaching.
Best of luck to you, and again, my apologies for not seeing your question until today.

I am wondering if there is a chart that comes with the actual product in a sort of calendar format in addition to your explanation like from the preview download. Or if you could explain a little further as to what this guide provides. I teach 11th grade in TN, and next we are going to CCS.

Hi there. I am so sorry that I did not know I had a question until today. The pacing guide is what I was required to turn in to my district. It basically outlines the sequence of what I teach and the literature that over the years, I have found to be the "most important" to teach (obviously, that is a judgment call). It is general in the sense that I wanted it to apply to everyone.
I will add this...since I wrote that, I have read Notice and Note by Kylene Beers and Robert Probst. If you have not read it, I highly recommend it! I am going to use their recommendations (six signposts) in teaching my literature this year. 11th grade is hard, I find, because the common core still focuses on literature, but the ACT looms...and the Reading section is 3/4 nonfiction. So I try to find a balance.
Again, I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. I got an email today from TpT about another question, and when I came to this page, found your question as well. I hope you have a great school year!

Julie - Just downloaded your freebie. Looks useful! You might want to make a cover page to use as a thumbnail to attract buyers. Just having the full item there does not quickly grab a buyer's attention. Your freebie must be read, and buyers usually don't stop long enough to do that. Just a suggestion from a fellow TPT seller.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have fiftenn years of teaching experience in a small town, rural school district. I have taught freshmen, sophomores, juniors, honors sophomores and honors juniors.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try very hard to incorporate both left-brain and right-brain focused assignments. It is critical to me that my students know how to apply what they have learned. I'm a bit more formal with my honors sophomores and honors juniors in the type of assignments I offer, but discussion is key to all of my classes. I love laughter in the classroom and want my students to view me as a lifelong learner, not someone with all of the answers.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Two-time presenter at NCTE conferences (Denver and New York City) Presenter at OCTELA Spring Conference, Columbus, Ohio Nominee for the Golden Apple Award (school district's Teacher of the Year award)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.S. in English Education from The Ohio State University Masters in the Art of Teaching from Marygrove College

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have learned over the years that I simply cannot continue to stay at school until 5 PM every night and then go home and grade papers. My husband died in 2006 from brain cancer, and we have a seven year old daughter. I have had to learn how to simplify my life with routine in the classroom and smarter practices so that I can leave school at 3 PM and not take work home. This works pretty well except when research papers roll in...they are an entirely different beast, as we all know!
