- I taught in a "beyond textbooks" school district (beyondtextbooks.org), so there are no books required. All materials used are based off of various resources that are run through Google Docs/PDF hyperlinks. You may have to supplement/edit lesson plans for Fridays because those are primarily reserved for district formative assessments that are not included. That being said, if you want the assessments, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Upload content to GOOGLE DOCS because there is a lot of interactive/hyperlinked content (no books required).
- Lessons are aligned with the following common core standards:
9-10 RL.01 to 9-10 RL.09
9-10 RI.01 to 9-10 RI.09
- Lessons are planned based on aforementioned standards paced at on two week intervals. It's up to you how you want to arrange the 36 weeks of standards.
- There are also filler activities that you will have access to, free of charge. If you're unable to access anything, contact me at email@example.com
- A typical week of lesson plans are structured in the following way: Monday/Tuesday is typically reserved for direct instruction/lecture with activities, Wednesday through Friday is typically reserved for activities that give students a chance to work on the standard for the week
- If you would like the standard assessment codes for standards that are done via QuestionPress, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will share the codes. You may have to purchase a QuestionPress account. It would also help if your school is a 1 to 1, but QuestionPress does allow you to print tests out if you're not working in a 1 to 1 school.
- If you are unable to open any url link embedded in the lesson plan(s), I will be more than happy to share it via Google Docs. You just need to email me at email@example.com
- Course Description: This course develops higher level thinking skills through a diverse cross section of literature. There will be a strong focus on the use of the writing process and the six-traits rubric. In addition, this course will cover grammar, vocabulary and reading comprehension.
*Poetry, plays, short stories, books, and informational text should be used to supplement this list.
** It is important to realize that students may need to purchase books or access them digitally.
