MORE Lesson Plans for Substitute Teachers: Classroom-Tested Activities from the National Council of Teachers of English.
National Council of Teachers of English, Urbana, IL.
This resource brings together classroom-tested, successful teaching ideas and activities used by real teachers. The 25 activities in the resource--most requiring little to no advance preparation--involve middle school and high school students in meaningful, active learning on topics in language arts that include public speaking, language exploration/vocabulary, prewriting/writing, writing: developing a character, and poetry. Each lesson in the resource is generally adapted for approximately one class period. None of these lessons requires technical knowledge of literary concepts or demands expert pedagogical skills. A highly experienced substitute teacher might well see opportunities to enhance the activities in the resource, to extend the prewriting discussion, or to add small group work and peer editing to composition assignments.
