Product Description
This is a PREP FREE two plus weeks of literary greats from New England including Hawthorne, Thoreau, Emily Dickinson, Edgar Allan Poe, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Jack Kerouac, J.D. Salinger, and Stephen King. All you need to do it purchase and print for stress free planning and activities your students will love! Beginning with a research project encouraging collaborative learning and then a daily presentation as you move from author to author chronologically; each day’s lesson includes all of the components you need to earn kudos for lesson planning: Activator, Mini Lesson, Activity, Wrap Up, ELA Common Core Standards, and activities including a nature walk and reflection a la Thoreau, drawing the yellow paper Charlotte Perkins Gilman describes while her narrator slowly loses her mind, a reflection on three of Emily Dickinson’s poems and connections made to her own life…to name just a few! A matching quiz on lines studied from these must-know New England authors as well as a geography refresher on New England states and capitals and a reflection in writing on the overarching question: “Where have we been? Where are we going?” is sure to both engage your students and give them the literary background showcasing New England greats in a fun and novel way and allows for ALL of your students to shine. This is a great starter for a more in depth study, or stands alone as a wonderful introduction to authors all students should be familiar with. Plus, this gives you at least two weeks, if not closer to three, of a much needed break in prepping!! Have fun and best, Rockermom
