From Electric English...
This is a packet that contains a vast amount of material covering the American Realistic Period of literature. For this reason, I have intentionally not included lesson plans to accompany this material; the idea here is that you have a variety of resources to pull from as you decide how you want to shape what little time you have in the classroom. Aahhhh, there never seems to be enough time :) Anyway, whether you love Edwin Arlington Robinson, Frederick Douglass, or Charlotte Perkins Gilman... There is something in this packet for you.

You may notice that there are a Realism 1 and Realism 2 packet posted in my store. This product contains everything from both :) I have listed only the first and last standards for Common Core, but you will cover most of the standards if you complete all of these activities. Whether you are a fan of Common Core or not; all of these activities are simply great teaching practices...

You might also notice as you peruse my store that each of these items is listed individually, as well as, bundled. For example, the answer key for an assessment is listed separate from the assessment itself.... This is not because I am greedy or want to squeeze one more dollar out of you. Had I included the answer key with the assessment, I would have listed the price at a dollar higher anyway.

No, I list everything separate because as a teacher, I know, that sometimes you want some material but do not want other material. And, you should not have to pay for items you do not need. To continue with my previous example, you might just want to do the answer key yourself and save the money.... I completely understand the need to save money; what teacher doesn't :) But if you do want it all, this packet easily contains twelve weeks of work, if not more...
