Purpose and Goals of THE BLOG

This year, I will be teaching more than just English 3 and 4, so I have re-oriented the blog to serve a few different features. I also want my work to be useful beyond my own classroom, so I have tried to make this site more accessible for other teachers looking for English classroom lesson ideas. From now on, I want to include my lesson plans here on the blog and plan to retroactively post my lessons to previous posts. I hope this will encourage relevant and engaging student learning locally and globally! Please give me any comments, questions, feedback, and your own ideas for ways to create meaningful learning!

NEW! Educator Resources links at the bottom of the left margin.

MOVED! English 3 and English 4 curriculum post labels are now at the following links:
     English 3 American Literature Assignments and Posts
     English 4 British/European Literature Assignments and Posts

NEW! Teachers Pay Teachers Store. Check out entire unit plans at my new, affordable TPT store!

Thanks for your support, willingness to learn, and collaboration!

Continuing She's the Man

Complete the worksheet for She's the Man before we compare this Shakespearean adaptation to a traditional version of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night.

As we continue with Shakespeare, prepare your paper presentation for your exam day (Thursday for 1st, Friday for 2nd). Remember I will add up to 10 points on your paper grade based on this presentation for your final exam grade.

Beginning Twelfth Night

The entire unit for Shakespeare's Twelfth Night will begin today. We will look at some famous quotes from the play to see their presence in modern times. (Even more Twelfth Night quotes can be found at the preceding link.)

I have gathered together several websites that have information about Shakespeare or his times. Use these websites to finish filling out your information guide to Shakespeare.
