FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Color Blind Test Cards – Boardmaker Visual Aids for Autism SPED”

by ZippadeeZazz

Kindergarten – 3rd Grade

Autism Visual Aids Schedules, also known as Picture Communication Symbols.

This system has several phases spanning from pointing at symbols on a communication board, exchanging large cards with symbols or real photo’s for the item, and using smaller hook and loop fastener routines and schedules.

Visual aids can be used for in a variety of situations and occasions, such as: school, shopping, and home.

Some children who are non-verbal find visual resources brilliant for communicating their wants and needs.

Our range of Boardmaker and real stock photo visual aids have been tried and tested, and we’ve received excellent feedback regarding successful response rates and communication breakthroughs.

You can buy our handy bundle which contains ALL our Boardmaker resources (excluding any visual aids made after Sept 2016) which totals 141 visual aids: CLICK HERE TO VIEW MONEY SAVING BUNDLE

Brave New World Student Workbook

Product Description

Brave New World Student Workbook contains everything a teacher needs to teach Huxley’s novel. Instead of the boring question and answer format, the Student Workbook prompts students’ ideas about characters, asks them to comment on significant quotes, and to notice some of the essential techniques used by the author such as symbolism, allusions, themes, etc. in each of the chapters. I have created this resource for my own classes, and students love the meaningful format.

In addition, a comprehensive answer key is also provided for the teacher. You now have all of the flexibility needed for your lesson plans with all of the work provided for you.

More specifically, the Student Workbook contains (23 activity pages):

  • An introductory activity and Anticipation Guide

  • Chapter 6 with a focus on conflicts, significant quotes, and important facts from the novel
  • Review pages for chapters 1-6 with a focus on historical allusion, Huxley’s warnings for the future, and the significance of setting and mood. (This is a good quiz preparation.)
  • Chapter 7 with a focus on important facts from the novel and characterization.
  • Chapters 8 & 9 with a focus on characterization, Shakespearean allusions, flashback technique, important facts from the novel, and student inferencing.

  • Chapters 12 & 13 with a focus on important facts from the novel, connections to Shakespearean allusions, and characterization.
  • Chapters 14 & 15 with a focus on important facts from the novel, making connections to significant quotes, allegorical (archetypal) characters in the novel.
  • Connections from Plato’s The Allegory of the Cave to Huxley’s characters and situations. (With directions to a Ted Talk for further explanation.)
  • Making connections to a modern song for further analytic connections to both the novel and to Plato’s Allegory of the Cave.
  • Themes and meaning activity to further the meaning of Huxley’s themes and how they can relate to us today.

Poetry Unit (for senior students)

Product DescriptionPoetry Unit for Senior Students (Bundled)

I love poetry! I love reading it, I love teaching it, and I love the discussions I can have with my students because of it. May students (and some teachers) dislike poetry because they think it’s too difficult. I once had a student tell me that poetry was like a “code” that needed to be unlocked. Cringe!! Some poems are meant to be analyzed. Some poems and meant to sound beautiful, and some poems are meant to be simple and enjoyed for what they are. This unit has a little of all of those things. 

Students love this poetry unit. It is a complete unit with no prep required on the teacher’s part. This 2 and a half week unit includes a student guide, 12 detailed lesson plans, two multimedia presentations (no internet connection required), a complete answer key with annotated poems (this is a teacher favorite!) , and an end of the unit evaluation with answer key. 

Just print it and teach it. It really is that easy.

This bundle includes individual lessons devised to teach students the importance of:

• Figurative language (its uses and effects)
• How to read poetry
• How to understand and apply symbolism and imagery
• The importance of rhythm 
• The importance of tone and attitude in a poem
• Types of poetry
• How to analyze poetry
• How to appreciate poetry (even when you don’t understand it)
• Includes some Canadian poetry 

This unit’s focus is the analysis of poetry and teaches students how to make inferences, which is a skill they must learn for their other subjects as well. 

Poems include authors such as Emily Dickenson, Dorothy Parker, Maya Angelou, Thomas Gray, Lord Alfred Tennyson, Alfred Noyes, T.S. Eliot, Shakespeare, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Robert Frost, Pearl Jam, Langston Hughes, Margaret Atwood, and Walt Whitman. The Unit includes 21 different poems.

The unit has been conceived to last 15 days – with 65 minute periods (although they are easy to modify). 

The unit includes:

1 – The teacher guide (Contains 12 comprehensive lesson plans to teach the poems included in the unit. EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO TEACH THIS UNIT HAS BEEN DONE FOR YOU. )

2 – The student package (Contains students’ notes, poems, and questions) (28 pages)

3 – The answer key includes annotated poems and answers to all student activities, as well as an example of paragraph developing a theme in poetry (saving you time).

4 – Included is a test with multiple choice questions as well as one development question. All answers are included. (Word format for easy changes)

5 – 2 PowerPoint presentations – one multimedia presentation to introduce the unit (17 slides) and the second to reinforce the use of imagery and symbolism (19 slides) – NO INTERNET CONNECTION REQUIRED

A total of 68 pages + 36 slides are included in this package. 

This unit is complete and does all of the thinking for you. All you need to do is to print out and photocopy the student package, and you’re set.

Check out these individual lessons from the unit: 
Poetry and Imagery – Langston Hughes
Tone in poetry – Robert Frost

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Literature Analysis- It’s Good to be Me… It’s Good to be You”

by Connie

6th – 12th Grade

Here are two activities when teachers need a few go to lessons for exploring the elements of literature, in this case-Character.

These engaging activities will hook Middle School and High School students into reading and writing about the text that they are studying.The two activities will check off two of your, “Need to Do” boxes. 

Not only will they engage students in their character exploration of the people they meet in their reading, but they will also allow your charges to reveal their own personalities and thoughts. 

This is a great way for young people to turn their private “The Me You Don’t Know” traits and thoughts into their “The Me I Want You to Know” word pictures that they are willing to share publicly. 

Also, these FREE activities fulfill two requirements objectives on most lesson plans- they will jump start students’ higher level thinking skills and give them a chance to exhibit their thinking in their writing.

Young people love to talk about their lives and to offer what they choose about themselves. Here is their chance to do so while they are analyzing literature.

NOTE: although these work as great activities at the beginning of the year for you to get to know your students and for them to learn about each other, they are good throughout the year. As students add to their understanding about types of characters, they will be showing their dynamic and round sides.

Death of a Salesman Unit (Complete No Prep)

Product Description

Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman used to be one of my least favorite plays to teach. I found it depressing, and I had a difficult time teaching it in a way that was meaningful to students. Then, I created this bundle so that students would not only learn about drama, tragedy, irony, etc. but also think about their own futures, while they are contemplating their post-secondary education. While Willy Loman’s dreams are unrealistic and unattainable, students contemplate their own dreams, strengths, and weaknesses. You will definitely have more than a few excellent discussions when teaching this play.

This unit has been conceived with the teacher in mind. It contains a Student Guide, a Teacher Guide, and a comprehensive Answer Key. All you have to do is print the packages and teach them. It’s as easy as that! I’ve also included two different options for end unit evaluations, which both contain evaluation grids and answer key. The unit is, in my opinion, visually appealing and the contents teach analysis of literature.

What the bundle contains: (The documents, except for the evaluations, are in PDF format.)

The Student Guide contain 16 pages: (2 versions, with graphics and one without)

-Notes on the American Dream

-An anticipation guide

-An in-depth look at success as it pertains to the lives of the students (which can, later on, be related to the play.)

-Thematic comprehension questions for each act

-Work on motifs and symbols used in the play

-Work on characterization

-Poem association (Langston Hughes’ poem)

-Notes on tragedy (Aristotle’s definition and modern definition)

-Review notes for students

Answer Key contains 29 pages:

-Answers to ALL of the students’ work

-Introduction to Arthur Miller

-Comprehensive notes on each scene of the play (to help students understand and appreciate literary techniques used by the author)

-List of themes and how they are developed – Revue sheet

Final evaluation contains three different options:

1) A unit test with answer key. Contains 3 essay type questions.

2) An essay. Contains essay topics, work process (steps 1…..), an outline guide, and an evaluation grid.

ALL EVALUATIONS ARE FORMATTED IN WORD DOCUMENTS FOR EASY CHANGES AND MODIFICATIONS AND INCLUDE A COMPREHENSIVE ANSWER KEY.

The Teacher Guide contains 5 pages:

-Includes 8 complete lessons that leave the teacher nothing to do, but to teach.

Lesson 1: Historical context and pre-reading

Lesson 2: Setting and reading (there are specific pages assigned to each lesson)

Lesson 3: Symbols, Motifs and reading the play

Lesson 4: Character chart and reading the play

Lesson 5: Reading – exploring irony and the meaning of the title

Lesson 6: Reading and a look at the difference between modern and classic tragedy

Lesson 7: Theme development and review

Lesson 8: Evaluation (Option 1 – test (answer key included), Option 2 – Essay (evaluation grid, work process, outline included)
