Looking to add more diversity to the English 12 curriculum. It’s traditionally British Lit., but I’ve considered incorporating a world lit unit. Does anyone have some ideas about good core texts for this age group?

Okay, it’s time to rethink my ELA middle school methods course. I’m bored with it and the PSTs aren’t getting as much as they should. What awesome things are you reading? What kick-ass assignments are you using? I need to know!

Looking for an online platform or design idea for my middle school students to share about/reflect on/track books they complete in our summer reading challenge. Thanks!

Fellow MS/early HS teachers, I am looking for texts to teach in 8th - 10th grade that focus on the natural world/humans' relationship to animals/nature. I'd be grateful for any ideas! Fiction or creative/literary non-fiction OR other. Translated texts also fine!

Suggestions on team builders for ELA/Literacy leaders? Last year we had people share the book that had the biggest impact on their lives and then had a book swap - want something new and inspirational that builds team!

Thanks to for the inspiring post on onepagers earlier this year - I integrated them multiple times this semester, and wanted to bring their positive, creative energy into the exam environment too.

Hey ! I need help! For our unit, my honors 9 class needs to analyze tone, word choice, imagery, and figurative language. I’d like to give them multiple short stories to compare. Ideas for great short stories to use to compare author’s style?

Favorite podcasts to share with middle schoolers? Class novel went over like a lead balloon, so we are changing course.

Needing a picture book (one in English and one in Spanish) to read aloud at an event at my middle school this week! The event is camping themed and we are inviting families (kids of all ages) to come sit around a fake campfire and listen to a story. Any ideas?

What policies/procedures do teachers favor to fight distraction in the classroom? What works? I've felt like a first year teacher at times this year as I try to get my students to disengage from phones and focus on class. Summoning the hive mind for this.

Trying to find recent articles about YA lit in the classroom, one arguing something along the lines of "YA isn't literary enough/we should teach 'classics'" and another arguing the opposite. Suggestions ?

For example, my Ss were always taught: "You can trust a .gov or .edu website. These are 'top-level' domains." This heuristic is obviously antiquated: .gov sites can change to reflect ideology. Ts need to refresh, and reteach.

My newest physically-feel-the-top-of-my-head-coming-off feeling comes thanks 2 Yona Harvey's "Mother, Love" poem. Just salivating from these poems in Hemming The Water. 💗💗💗 She is a wordsmith in every sense of the word!

How do we teach research to high school students in 2019? Approaches need to be responsive to the public's relationship with information, & relative to what Ss have been taught since 2009 The info environment has changed, & teachers need to refresh. [thread]
