I have taught for ten years and at a few different schools. Over time, a few of my colleagues and I have put together a curriculum that covers all our state's requirements. This curriculum flows from grade 7 to grade 12 to insure that everything is covered. Two of my classes can be for combination 9th and 10th grades or made separate into and English 9 and an English 10 class. I include four pillars of English: grammar, reading, writing, and oral communications. I also include suggested novels, short stories, and drama guides for each grade level. If you are a beginning teacher, this would be a very helpful product for you. I have a year overview of the grade level, I have it broken into quarters, and in a chart form. I have each item labeled for the standard it covers as well as which of the four pillars it covers. This is my grade 8 curriculum. Check out my store for other grade level curriculum, and I will also have a mega bundle with all of the curriculum together for a discounted price. Thank you!
