Katrina, I recall you doing a "writer's workshop" activity one time when I was in your room for IP observations. I have a Friday only English "lab" class that is supposed to be separate from my regular sophomore English classes and I was thinking of trying writing workshop this semester for that.
I don't see anything on you Teacher Lady page for writer's workshop. Do you still have the packet you used?
Hope Washington is treating you both well!
Thanks,
Susie Wentworth

I looked at all of your resources and I think you're doing a great job!!! I taught middle school reading for three years. (I love teaching reading.) The range of reading levels I taught were from second grade to college! I had to learn the students' language and interests. I had them make resources which were very successful.

Your products will not sell like the lower grades. Most teachers in upper grades have books for students which they follow. This is changing and you will see more sales. Use common core objectives and connect them to your resources.

I'm so happy to see upper grade teachers be creative! Keep creating...it takes a long time to you develop a following. Remember you are carving a new way of teaching, it takes time. Never give up since you may create a product or products which teachers want!!!

Be Positive,
Anne Weaver

Buyer re: Research Unit Integrating LA & Social Studies: Plan Your Dream Trip
Hi! Just purchased your product and it looks great! You have listed that the research essay will be graded on the 6 traits rubric, but there is a big space after that. Was the rubric supposed to be there? Is that something I need to get for myself?
You also have the following:
6 Traits Score: ______________/36 + _______________/48 (Project Score) = _________________/84
Is an 84 the highest grade available?

Thanks!

Hello,

Thanks for your questions!

There should have been a kid-friendly 6 Traits Rubric included in the document. I'm not sure why there was a space in the download, but I'm investigating! I'd be happy to e-mail the rubric to you as a separate document if you'd like.

You are correct that 84 points is the total for this assignment. If that doesn't work well for your gradebook, you can always take the "total" score and multiply it by two, making it worth 168 points.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns!

I just purchased your file and am very disappointed because I can't open it. It says Power Point but it is saved as a Word file with a weird ppt.doc ending that is not recognized by either Word nor Power Point.

Hello,

I'm sorry you're having trouble with this file! It's one of my bestselling products and no one has brought this issue to my attention before.

I just downloaded the file on both a Mac and a PC and it worked correctly; however, I did notice that when I selected "open" instead of "save," it did open as a Word Document and was completely unreadable. Try selecting "save" instead.

If you're still having issues with it, leave your e-mail address, and I will send you a copy. I hope that helps!

Best regards,
Katrina

Hi Andrea,

I hadn't originally included one because answers will vary for every question. Are you wanting answers for the graphic organizers? I'd be happy to put together some examples of good answers and repost the product. Please let me know if that's not what you're looking for. Thanks for your correspondence and suggestion.

I was planning on doing both multiple choice for definitions of the traits as well as revising a paragraph. Your powerpoint has been a great way to practice the traits but I need to assess their retention before I move on. Let me know if you create anything!

Hi,

Thanks for your correspondence. I actually do not have a quiz or test for the 6 Traits of Writing, but now that you mention it, I think I may make one. I have given students a paragraph and had them revise for each trait as an assessment after using these notes. Is that the type of quiz/test you think would be beneficial to users of the cloze notes? I appreciate your feedback!

Have a great day,

Hi Cara,

Thanks for your correspondence. I just tried downloading them myself, and the looked normal for me. I wonder if we have incompatible versions of Word. If you will give me your e-mail address, I'll convert them to a PDF and e-mail them to you this afternoon. Hopefully, that will solve the problem.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Buyer re: Reciprocal Teaching Prompting Cards
Dear Literacy Across the Curriculum - I am a Third Grade Teacher in Concord, NH. I LOVE your prompting cards and use them regularly. I am preparing to team teach at a local conference in February. I am writing to ask for your permission to make approximately 20 copies of your materials for the conference. I didn't know how much that would cost and was wondering what you would charge for that. Thank you so much for letting me know and thank you for your wonderful materials.
Sincerely,

Hello Karen,

Thank you for your correspondence! I am so glad you are enjoying my Reciprocal Teaching resources. I'm honored that you want to use them at your conference. If you access the product here:
http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Reciprocal-Teaching-Prompting-Cards
you can click on "purchase multiple licenses," which gives you permission to make copies of the document at a rate of $1.25 per copy. I would just request that you purchase as many licenses as copies you will make.

I'd also really appreciate if you mentioned me as the source of the cards in your presentation.

Thank you again for your note. I see in your profile that you teach at a Christian academy; I went to a small Christian school from K-12th grade and have very fond memories of my special teachers there!

Have a great day,

Katrina Groen

Hi Dina,

The picture is actually taken from a commercial in which the phrase "5 Dollar Footlong" is repeated. Almost all my students were very familiar with the commercial, so I would predict that yours would be too. Just in case they're not, you can find the commercial at the following web address:

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught Reading and Language Arts at the middle school level for 5 years in Buckeye, Arizona. I've also taught both Developmental Reading and Reading English as a Second Language at the community college level. This year (2013-2014), I am embarking on a new journey teaching high school English in Lacey, Washington! I love a new challenge!

MY TEACHING STYLE

This year, one of my students gave me the sweetest compliment I've ever received: "You inspire me because you treat everyone equitably and you love us all." It sounds kind of mushy, but it's true. My classroom is one of respect and friendliness as well as excellence and rigor. We work together, and everyone's ideas are valued.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I'm a National Board Certified Teacher in Early Adolescent English Language Arts. I've received my district's Pride Award for teacher who best exemplifies the work ethic and values of the Litchfield Elementary School District. I've also been a mentor to a student teacher as well as the coordinator of my school's New Teacher Mentoring Program.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I completed Reading Specialist coursework from Chapman University in 2010. I have a M. Ed. in Elementary Education from Arizona State University, and a B.A. in English Literature from Western Washington University.
