This is a half-week worth of in-depth lesson planning. These lesson plans address Grades 9-10 ELA Common Core standards in ways that promote critical thinking and content-to-world connectivity and life meaning. This bundle deal includes heaps of original activities, quizzes, tests, reviews, and projects that students will remember forever. Text-to-world connections are at the forefront of these unforgettable, highly-meaningful, truly educational, life-long lessons. Overall, these plans were a small taste of the overall recipe that resulted in phenomenal improvement in my class last year, and I encourage everyone to try them!
