This is one week's worth of incredibly in-depth lesson planning. These lesson plans address Grades 9-10 ELA Common Core standards in ways that promote critical thinking, investigative analysis, and text-to-life meaning. This bundle deal includes an original Facebook project and profile that I created for the character Cassius. I have conducted these lessons multiple times, and the students' engagement in them is certainly both noteworthy and gratifying for any teacher. Text-to-world connections are at the forefront of these meaningful, truly educational, life-long lessons.
These lessons are in PowerPoint form for ease of use and access to Cassius' originally created Facebook profile that essentially serves as a model for the students' own inventions. Overall, these plans are a small taste of the complete recipe that resulted in remarkable improvement in my class throughout the year, and I encourage others to explore the ideas in them for the sake of helping our students to become the best people possible for our future.
