This is a good formal summative assessment. Thank you for sharing.

FYI-
There is a typo in the directions at the very beginning of the test. You use say 'you're essay' ... should ready 'your essay'

Also when listing the Main Characters, you forgot the closing parentheses.

Hi. I just downloaded the Handmaid's Tale short answer test. It will come in handy for my IB students who may or may not be reading...However, I have a problem with the format. The adobe file looks weird. The second page starts halfway down the page, with the continuation of a question from the previous page. I tried to cut and paste to show you, but it is not allowing me. Please let me know if you have another version of this.

Hi, Cynthia! I live in Ellijsy, but I'm retired now. I taught in Cobb County for 32 years. TpT has given me a brest way to make a little money from all of the materials I made through the year. The beet advice I can give is upload all of the assignments you have. It will take awhile, but users will find you. The more good activities you have, the better your chances for sales. Good luck to you!

Michael M. re: Kite Runner Unit Materials
I was looking for a multiple choice test. This served as a good basis, but required quite a bit of work to adapt. I was surprised at the number of errors. For example, Zalman instead of Zaman. Kyber Pass instead of Khyber Pass. Also, there are question errors. For example, Q48 of Short Answer asks what Amir does for an entire year. I believe it should ask what Sohrab does for an entire year since the answer is "stay silent."

I am hoping you can help me. What grade do you use The Glass Castle with? I was hoping to incorporate this novel into my 9th grade curriculum, but the principal said no. I have a chance to defend my choice, so any feedback regarding student reaction/ engagement would be helpful.

Thanks so much!

Oh, Asa, this is such a hard question because so much depends on the community where you teach. I taught the book to 11th and 12th graders because they were old enough to deal maturely with the book's profanity and also understand the book's tone. Although I know other teachers have taught the book successfully to 9th graders, I'm afraid it would have caused an uproar in my community. Good-luck to you!

Dear Ms. Parrott,

My name is Jack Dennison. I am the Editor-in-Chief of www.FunnelBrain.com, an educational website. I am writing to you because the quality of the work you have posted to PTP distinguishes you as a talented author. I am looking for teacher-authors to create custom study review materials for FunnelBrain (on a paid basis, of course).

These study materials would take the form of online flashcards, quizzes, and study guides for high school and college level courses, as well as for certain standardized exams such as the GMAT, the SAT or the GRE. We are also interested in lesson plans built around activities that can take place on www.FunnelBrain.com.

If you are interested in a paid writing assignment, please email me at jack@funnelbrain.com, and I will respond with details on the available assignments. In the meantime, please feel free to browse FunnelBrain.com.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
Jack Dennison

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I worked in schools either as a middle school teacher, high school teacher, or administrator for over thirty years. Most of my experience has been in high school English classrooms. I have taught everything from ninth-grade literature to students with major reading problems all the way to AP English Language and Composition teacher. Although I love teaching, I retired at the end of the 2009-2010 school year when over 500 teachers in my district lost their jobs because of the bad economy. I'm praying that the economy will improve and I will be able to find another teaching job in high school or college in the future.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to have fun in the classroom, and I want my students to enjoy reading and writing. I also realize however that we must have high standards for ourselves and high standards for our students. I believe in providing extensive opportunities for students to read, write, and share their work with their peers. I am also traditional in that I believe students must read works carefully and that their writing must exhibit correct use of standard written English.
