22 Handouts for Any Book Unit (Word Document Version)
Note: I have an identical version of this product available in PDF. Some prefer the Word document version, as it is easier to manipulate the documents.
As the product title suggests, the following is a set of 22 handouts, projects, and worksheets that can be used as part of any literature unit. Some handouts are self explanatory; some handouts have instructions; some handouts are designed to be used as group activities; some are better suited for individual student work; some are simple one-day activities or homework assignments; some are extended, standards-based projects. However, by cutting and pasting into any word-processing program, you will be able to modify all the documents here to be used in a countless variety of ways.
Many of these assignments are geared to high school juniors and seniors, or to ninth and tenth grade students who read and write at grade level. Yet even the most advanced of these assignments can be easily modified to accommodate any level of high school student ability. Several of these assignments are explicitly Common-Core-Standards aligned, with the targeted standards listed on the handouts. This wide selection of ready-to-use assignments for the high school English class will save any teacher, especially one with fewer than five years of experience, a lot of time and effort. Thanks for looking.
