This bundle of notes is what I give my students to create a resource folder that they can take with them at the end of the year. As I give them out during the different units, I print them on colored paper and punch holes in them. This signals the students that this is a resource that goes in the brads of their folder.
Former students have told me that they are so glad that I provided them with all this information that they could keep and use as they go through high school. I have used these notes from 6th grade ELA to English III in some form or another.
This bundle includes notes over the following:
Character Traits/Static vs Dynamic Characters
A. P. E. Strategy for Short Answer Questions
Literary Devices (Elements and Techniques)
Elements of Mysteries
Fiction vs Nonfiction
Notice and Note Fiction Signposts
Notice and Note Nonfiction Signposts
Parts of Speech
