I am wondering if you are thinking of creating any more clues for the Amazing Race. My 7th grade class ate those up and made my classroom the talk of the town. If you have any more - I would gladly purchase them from you.

Thanks,

Chris McGalloway

I do have another set of clues...l will begin working towards making them "TPT ready"!

I have been using them with my 6th graders and I know exactly what you mean about being "the talk of the town"!:-)

Hey, I just tested a few of them and they seem to be working. Could you email me at eslocum2010@gmail.com if you are still having trouble and we can either exchange numbers and try to troubleshoot over the phone or converse over email itself which would be faster. I will look for your email...

Are you Google Docs links for Chap 9-12 BookBuds and Plot Summary organizer linked correctly? When I use them I get linked to Chap 5-8 info. ??? The vocab link for 9-12 is working ok. Thanks!

Thank you for contacting me about this issue! I am surprised that you are the first to point it out since I have sold over 100 downloads of this product. Perhaps it is a "quirk" in the system that happened just recently. Nonetheless, I checked it, fixed it, and uploaded a revised version. (I hope you received the notification that I sent to all of my buyers.) Please try downloading it again and let me know if you have any other issues or questions. I'm here and I'm happy to help!

Hello! I originally created this product for myself so that I could maintain a structured lesson plan without having to type or write everything. The structure is typed in but it is meant to be filled in by hand. In addition, this product was uploaded as a PDF file in order to maintain its format between various computer programs. So, unfortunately it cannot be edited on a computer. I would still recommend it nonetheless! I hope you find it helpful.

Sharyn H. re: A Wrinkle in Time: Novel Study Unit Plan
The description states that there are 118 pages available for download but only 46 pages print. Where are the other pages?

The other pages are included at the end of each lesson plan as links to the other materials (to be downloaded and printed)...which end up totaling 118 pages once you've downloaded all the quizzes, graphic organizers, etc.

Thanks for asking!

Do you know if this would work with the graphic novel version of this story?

I'm not very familiar with the graphic novel, but from what I was able to gather from a little research it doesn't look like it would work seamlessly. I'm sure you could tailor many of the ideas included in this novel study to match the graphic novel, but it would require some extra work.

Lauri Solla  (TpT Seller) re: US History Critical Thinking Qs (Bloom's Taxonomy): 1950s and 1960s
Hello - I did a search for Civil Rights and your product came up. I purchased it -and it isn't what I thought it was...I teach Civics, not American history...I was hoping for questions related to specific court cases. It would be a great tool for an American history teacher.

Is there any way you would consider refunding my money?
Thanks in advance,

Absolutely! I will look into how this is done tomorrow since I am unfamiliar with this process. I hope you find what you are looking for!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught 5th grade Social Studies and Language Arts for 2 years each in both a public and a private school. I have also led a team of teachers in vertically aligning the Social Studies curriculum and instruction across grades levels from elementary to high school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that my role as a teacher is to create a learning environment that is intentionally designed to invite students to think deeply, cultivate their imagination, and develop personal responsibility for their education.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Honors in Education: Investigated the correlation between students’ gaming habits and their higher order thinking skills (published by Houghton College); Suma Cum Laude; Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor of Science in Education

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I enjoy spending time with my family, baking/cooking/eating meals together, watching & critiquing movies, singing in a choir, and playing competitive board/card games!
