Just like the video I watched many years ago that was supposed to expose the huge secret of Shakespeare's true identity, this assignment sounds a little more exciting than the reality. Not to say it isn't cool. Just not life-changing. You get

My wife created this study guide. It's a pretty good guide, but I have not added the answers for a couple of reasons: it's seven pages long and my wife's handwriting is awful. If and when I do add answers, the price will go up. Anyhow, a lot of it

Have you ever tried selling something on Craigslist or at a rummage sale that you weren't even sure what it was, but you figured someone else might like it? Our first rummage sale after the kids was like that, and I sold a wiener dog boot scraper

Have you ever been told by someone who's not even in the classroom that students really need to have choices in what they read? And then you're like, "Great, but how do I grade them?" If the guru your district has hired can tell you, then use those

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Twelve years teaching in a suburban district near Milwaukee.
Check out my own creative writing here My wife taught four years, as well. She taught more of the Advanced classes and less of the creative ones.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Use of technology in the classroom when useful. Taught several classes completely online. Emphasis on Cultural Literacy and background knowledge in order to understand literature and how to write, but also to connect with other classes. My wife was the typical martyr teacher who planned until 7pm on a Friday for the next week. Her lessons are organized and usable out of the box, whereas a teacher might have to step outside the box to see how cool my lessons can be.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My honor was to have students published in my creative writing classes, students who otherwise disliked school or English class to succeed, and for students to tell me today that they remember lessons from over a decade ago. Many of the honors and awards from my past will do little to shape my future, but the fact that people like you are purchasing and using some of these lessons that took me hours upon hours of my own time to create is a great honor. Some of these units were important in the lives of students I was able to reach, and there's magic in a few of the assignments. I just hope that these downloads being here for you can make your life a little easier.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

ME-- *French Immersion School - Milwaukee Public Schools ---*UW-Milwaukee - English Major, French Minor, Urban Planning Certificate ---*UW-Eau Claire - Teaching certification in MAT program WIFE -- Brookfield Academy ---UW-Eau Claire - Journalism ---Carroll College - English Teaching Cert.
