  1. This is a selection of loosely structured units to be used as the basis for a year of teaching Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, or Senior English. It would be ideal for a teacher with under 5 years of experience, as it would allow you to hit the ground running. Admittedly, I have taught many more years

Here are a number of ready-to-go ELD (English Language Development—A.K.A., ESL, EL) prompts that you can use for your ELD students if they are mainstreamed into your high school English class.

When I have an English III class with four ELD students, for example, I offer these writing prompts as an alternative when I assign English-speaking students regular essays.

I am throwing in seven worksheets on American expressions. They also can be useful as alternative assignments for ELD students.

This Unit includes:
Ø 13 writing prompts all as individual handouts with clear, thoughtful instruction and guidance for English learners.
Ø 7 additional handouts on American idioms/expressions.
Ø 2 Prompts for alternative book reports—for English learners.
