Two weeks worth of material!
Includes a Reader's Response Journal with 23 pages of personal journal topics related to themes that arise in the reading, text-based reading questions, and paragraph prompts with rubrics. Pairs "Still I Rise" by Maya Angelou with Speak for an examination of literary terms and a written response connecting the two pieces. Students also watch a short Youtube video, "Why do cliques exist?" and answer questions.
Includes a vocabulary list for the "First Marking Period" of Speak.
Includes a handout with transition words and phrases, as well as a handout on how to effectively set-up a quote. These two handouts have made a tremendous improvement in the quality of my students' writing, and I hope they will do the same for you!
