This is an entire year's worth (42 weeks) of in-depth lesson planning around the following texts: Frankenstein, Chinese Cinderella, Julius Caesar, Night, and Native Son. These lesson plans address all of the Grade 10 ELA Common Core standards in ways that promote critical thinking and content-to-world connections entrenched in life meaning. The following writing styles are also covered throughout these lesson plans: open-ended, persuasive, argumentative, compare/contrast, expository-quote, and explanatory-situation.
For less than one dollar per week of lesson planning, this is an extraordinary bundle deal with heaps of original activities, quizzes, tests, reviews, and projects that students will remember for a lifetime. Text-to-world connections are at the forefront of these truly meaningful, educational, life-long lessons that lend to teaching character alongside content in preparing our students to become the best possible people for the future of our world. I had the pleasure of witnessing remarkable improvement in my classes, and I would love nothing more than to see other classrooms benefit from all of this work too. I encourage others to try these carefully-crafted plans that were already the recipe for well-rounded progress.
