Advanced English Bell Ringers
is perfect for Advanced Placement English Language and Composition, Honors English, or College Prep English classes
This versatile set can be used as bell ringers, rotating stations, task cards, homework assignments, mini-lessons
, or however you wish! They can be used with or without interactive notebooks
These bell ringers were designed to use less paper as each student page contains anywhere from 2 to 10 tasks to cut apart and hand out to students. Moreover, all 90 tasks
come in an editable PowerPoint
so that you can change anything you want, and this file has the tasks enlarged in case you want to project them with a digital presenter rather than print them. Let's not forget the best part: DETAILED ANSWER KEY INCLUDED
You can't go wrong with this set because it is so flexible!
Update on 7-29-2018 - I added another printing option. I added a file where the bell ringers appear chronologically so that they can be hole punched for a notebook, spiral/wire bound, stapled, etc. to make a notebook if you would rather not have the same ones on one page to cut apart as I originally offered. Lots of options with this pack!
The following topics are covered in this set. Not only are the terms explained, but students will have to apply these topics as they analyze, infer, apply, think, create, and write
. For instance, after students learn different rhetorical strategies, they will have to find those strategies in short passages. Students will also study the effect of rhetorical strategies on the reader. Students will learn so much from these tasks!

Variety for the word “said”

Make it easy on yourself this semester and use these adaptable bell ringers with your upper level students or with any students you want to challenge.
