This product (neatly organized into several subfolders) contains every handout re-created from all lessons 1-13 of unit 1, module 1, Grade 6 ELA from EngageNY (Expeditionary Learning). This is the beginning of the module about The Lightning Thief.
We all know that the handouts from EngageNY are terrible, so I recreated every handout in at least two versions for my classes. One version is a regular version and another version is a scaffolded version, very useful for English Language Learners or students with special needs. A few of the handouts have two different levels of differentiation. All of the assessments are included as well.
Main improvements I've made to EngageNY curriculum:
✔ Directions added to handouts lacking any instructions (both versions)
✔ Directions clarified and made less confusing (both versions)
✔ Emphasis of key words in directions using bold, underline, or italics (both versions)
✔ Reminders given to write in complete sentences (both versions)
✔ Reminders given to answer both or all questions being asked (both versions)
✔ Line spacing more appropriate for responding to questions (both versions)
✔ Questions chunked and broken up into parts (scaffolded versions)
✔ Sentence starters added (scaffolded versions)
✔ Key words underlined to prompt thinking (scaffolded versions)
✔ Synonyms given in parentheses for difficult vocabulary (scaffolded versions)
✔ Hints provided for some more challenging questions (scaffolded versions)
★ Bilingual glossaries created for "The Hero's Journey" and "Shrouded in Myth" texts (scaffolded versions--available with or without additional Spanish translations)
