Well, it's time for the most incredible happy hour you've ever seen. Because the Secondary Smorgasbord Happy Hour, brought to you by Pam from Desktop Learning Adventures and me, doesn't just promise you a temporary good time that will cost you dearly with a wicked hangover the next day. Nay nay.
You'll never regret stopping by, because we've got some of the very best secondary bloggers in the blogosphere ready and willing to actually help you do your work! They're giving you tips about amazing free resources in every content area, along with links so you can have them too!
What's that I hear? Angels, you say? Angels are singing? Yes! I hear them every time someone offers to help me do my work. Which means I've never heard them before now. Well, there was that one other happy hour...but I think that might have been the tequ...never mind.
My contribution is my interactive notebook lesson on how to write a short response using text evidence. My middle school kids love it, and they automatically know when a RAPS response is needed. They use the technique in all subjects, and their other teachers love it too.
I've included a reading passage, text evidence question, and a sample response. That's really all you need to teach the lesson. Beside students, that is. At lease one.
My students love to use foldables, and they started to call them "foldanizers" because they fold and organize. Kids are so clever and creative, aren't they?
So kick off your shoes, click through, take a look, and enjoy visiting the blogs and collecting these wonderful resources. I promise you won't have a headache tomorrow. Unless you don't like singing angels.
