This document includes a week to week plan for the entire school year. It could be adapted to any school calendar. The course is based on a prior year of teaching sophomore English as well as the teachings from the following books written by English teachers:
Kelly Gallagher's 1. Reading Reasons, 2. Write Like This, and 3. Teaching Adolescent Writers.
4. Cris Tovani's So What Do They Really Know?
5. Falling in Love with Close Reading by Christopher Lehman and Kate Roberts.
6. No More Independent Reading Without Support (Not This But That) by Debbie Miller, Barbara Moss, Neil K. Duke, and Ellin Oliver Keene.
Some components of the year-plan include students setting reading and writing goals, conferencing (if it's with every student as often as possible it's about once or twice a month at the most and I keep a tally log to make sure I conference with everyone), small group instruction (students are in groups based on assessing of reading and writing to make it easier to teach things that the small group needs to know), creative writing with full or partial student choice, and independent reading. This is in addition to regular whole class novels and presentations.
The way the week is structured could be changed but this is how I structure it: Monday: independent reading workshop with conferencing and small group instruction.
Middle of the week meetings: a combination of whole class lessons, activities/group work, and grammar.
Friday: Creative writing workshop with once a month on-demand essays. Conferencing and small group instruction also.
