This is part of my Scarlet Letter lessons, but it can be used for any text that involves realistic moral dilemmas. I want my students to think about what they would REALLY do, not what they SAY they would do. We follow this with a discussion about

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

If it involves English, I've probably taught it! In the 20 years I have been teaching, I have taught 5th through 12th grade English in both private and public school. I have taught gifted, regular, inclusion, ELL, and remedial. My first 8 years were in Florida, and the rest have been in North Georgia.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that every student can learn and be successful, but they have to be willing to try. I try to bring the real world into my classroom. I love to use technology and challenge students to think about things in new ways. I believe reading and writing are integrally connected and cannot be taught in isolation.
