    Classroom success stories from teachers who have tried this resource:

    ♥ “My 10th grade intensive reading students absolutely love this strategy. They got a kick out of the first three words, "someone, wanted, but...." and I went with it because, hey, it's a strategy they will remember. Thank you for making this available! It works for ANY kind of text.”

    ♥ “This was perfect practice for our keystone exams, plus it helped me in creating additional resources for my students who struggle with reading comprehension. Thank you for a great resource!!”

    ♥ “I've taught the SWBST strategy for a few years, but these new resources will add more engagement. I've usually focused on fiction, so the informational resources will be especially useful. Thanks.”

    ♥ "Great resource! My students are more confident summarizing texts after using this lesson. Many of them stated summarizing is easier now."

    ♥ "I cannot brag or boast about this resource enough. Three of the things that my students struggle with are specifically targeted in this bundle. These are skills that they will need to get throughout life, and I am so happy to spiral these skills in the classroom. Next year, I will be opening the year with this, as opposed to introducing it near the end. Either way, I feel happy being able to send my students off to high school with these critical skills."

    ♥ "Students were very engaged with the SWBST lesson. They feel more confident with summarizing text now! Thanks!"

    ♥ "I am SO happy I made this purchase! Thank you so making everything so complete and thorough! This is definitely going to be great with my English 9 students! What an awesome bundle!"

    Each of my ELA skills "How to Teach It" Lesson Packs includes a teacher's guide lesson plan, an easy-to-use PPT lecture explaining the concept, guided practice, an interactive activity, opportunity for collaborative and individual practice, and a form of assessment. See my other English standards teaching packs while you’re here, too, and teach the fundamental skills first for success!
