This is a follow-up to Mini-Lessons 1 with even more materials for you! Mini-Lessons Teen Relevant & Editable Middle & High School English Language Arts
* Please note that these two products aren't sequential; each contains a different collection of teen-friendly mini-lessons to use as you need.
Perfect for your ready-to-go teacher's toolkit + editable, Mini-Lessons 2 is based on my very popular Mini-Lessons 1! Use at the beginning, middle, or end of class – plus, most can be extended for a full class, and are designed to last basically from 15-45 minutes each. These lessons are excellent hooks, discussion starters, rewards, re-engagement strategies, brain breaks, extended bellringers …you name it. Plus, they are print and go ready with step-by-step teacher's directions and tips.
Have your mini-lessons copied and ready-to-go when your class needs to break breakaway from what they’re doing or when you need a strong, standards-based short lesson. Plan ahead and use within your units. Whatever your strategy, I think you and your students will find these not-so-mini-lessons intriguing and thought provoking.
