Our district adopted the EngageNY curriculum for both math and ELA starting this year. The materials are free through the EngageNY website, but the materials only consist of Teacher Instructions.
My 7th graders needed something much more concrete.
So I began a system of creating Student Activity Packets, which include graphic organizers for each activity, writing assignment break-downs, vocabulary practice worksheets, etc. I've also been designing and revising a method for assessing the material.
This packet accompanies EngageNY's 7th Grade ELA Module 1 using A Long Walk to Water, Lesson 8 only.
In this packet, you will find:
Teacher Notes for Prep and Post-Work
Student packet with Before Test Kinesthetic Activity
Re-formatted Mid-Unit Assessment (first part only)
I currently have packets for the entire Reading Closely Unit. Check back later in the year as I will have to design packets for the remainder of Module 1: Long Walk to Water and Module 2b.
