Comprehension Questions and Answers for Lord of the Flies

 

Product Description

Comprehension /Questions for Lord of the Flies

These comprehension questions for students were devised to help them focus on the most important parts of the novel. In my experience, students hate answering these questions because there are usually so many of them and many of them aren’t even that important. In this document, there are questions for every chapter, but I’ve only included the most important ones to help students with character, symbol, and theme development. There are 50 questions in total.

Included is:

– Student question sheets (3 pages)
– Teacher’s answer sheets (9 pages)

See preview for more details.

This activity is also part of a larger Lord of the Flies unit:

The way I use it…
Students enjoy this project! This is a 2-3 month project. Each class is different and each year is different; therefore, I can’t do everything the same each time I teach the same subject. I give each student a three pronged folder with the packet inside. As I scaffold and model the information to my students,

Additionally, for the modified Country Project, choose what you need to use from the selection. All the resources in the PDF are not duplicates. They are additional resources or have been modified to meet student needs.

Happy Teaching!

Senior Language Arts Learning Goals Posters

Senior Language Arts Learning Goals Posters

 

Product Description
Senior Language Arts Learning Goals Poster

Learning goals are important for our students’ education and learning. When we have a goal in mind when teaching, everything else serves a specific purpose, and everything seems to fall into place. As teachers, we are asked to display these learning goals in our classroom, but for me, this wasn’t possible.

With 30 plus students in my class, I didn’t have time to write my learning goals on chart paper or display them on the board. Hmmm… what’s a girl to do?

I created these posters to make my life, as well as yours, easier. This bundle offers ALL of the senior, (grade 12) goals and is in line with the Common Core as well as the Canadian curriculums.

The bundle includes: 

A 14-page checklist of all of the learning goals, which can help the teacher keep track of what’s been covered and what hasn’t.

55 Learning Goal posters (8×11) that can easily be posted on the bulletin board or the chalkboard at the front of the class.

These posters allow students to track learn the focus of the lesson.

Three strands are covered: (with the focus of each poster clearly indicated) 
1) Reading and Interpretation
2) Writing and Representation
3) Oral and Oral-Visual Communication

It’s teaching made easy!

FREE SOCIAL STUDIES LESSON – “The Doctor with an Eye for Eyes Patricia Bath Book Activity”

by My Happy Place

Kindergarten – 2nd Grade

 

 

This follow-up activity to Julia Finley Mosca’s The Doctor with an Eye for Eyes: The Story of Dr. Patricia Bath, allows students to reflect on the life of Patricia Bath while making text-to-self connections. With the included worksheet, students draw and write about a time that they showed perseverance.

This activity is best completed after a class discussion about Dr. Bath and the obstacles she faced growing up and entering into her career. The worksheet is included with two different line styles/sizes. Choose the page that will work best for your students. Additional lined pages are included if you wish to have children write more than will fit on the worksheet.

About the Book

The Doctor with an Eye for Eyes: The Story of Dr. Patricia Bath Is a picture book biography of Dr. Patricia Bath. The illustrations that accompany the rhyming text support the story and add details to enhance understanding. The book also includes additional biographical information for teachers at the end, as well as a timeline of Patricia Bath’s life.

Book images created by Daniel Rieley are used with permission from The Innovation Press.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Writing – “Just Say, ‘NO!’ to Dull Writing””

by Connie

6th – 12th Grade

 

 

This year-long,”Just Say, ‘NO!’ to Dull Writing” activity has always been one of my star middle and high school lesson plans. On the first day of school, I handed out to my students right after we reviewed the syllabus and classroom rules and expectations.

I explained to the students that they were required to refer to it for any writing-graded or non-graded. Also, I made a poster of it to hang in the classroom and I taped a copy of the list to each desk for continual writing reinforcement.

Although it is a integral part of ‘Chapter 2 – The Foundation’ in my teacher resource book, “The House of Comprehension,” I offer it in my TpT store for FREE. The Taboo Words and Phrases list and coordinating lessons are crucial for empowering students to write clear, specific sentences instead of those with meaningless word choices and weak structures.

Here are some suggestions for using this product:

1. The first day of school, hand out the Taboo Words & Phrases sheet to every student. Explain that they are to refer to it every time that they revise a draft of an essay, an original poem or fiction piece, or a narrative article. Mention that even if they only revise for these particular words and phrases, their writing will dramatically improve.
2. Discuss that
– when they use these weak and clichéd words and phrases, their writing is vague, emotionless, and tells instead of shows.
– no matter what type of writing they are composing, students should strive to create word pictures;
– their writing must show, not tell, and to do this they must use concrete, specific nouns and adjectives.
– Verbs form the backbone of writing, and should always show action as well as the emotion of the subject performing the action.
3. Write some sentences on the board that use these weak words and phrases, and have students revise them for strength and clarity.
4. Repeat this information over and over to the students and address it on their final drafts.

The Taboo Words & Phrases List also works as a poster to hang in the classroom. For a poster, add the following information:

Effective Writing:
-Shows instead of tells
-Creates word pictures
-Uses concrete, specific nouns and adjectives
-Forms strong sentences-writing’s backbone- with verbs that show action and emotion

The other day, a former student who is now a senior in college asked me to send it to her. On my Facebook Profile page she said, “Mrs. C- I am tutoring at CNU’s writing center and have to do a presentation on making writing “concise and precise.” Could you send me a copy of your taboo words list please? It’s been and will continue to be the best advice on writing well that I’ve found ” (Olga S).

When this Taboo Words and Phrases list impacts your students’ thinking and writing, it will become a lifelong tool just as it did for Olga.

<strong>The way I use it…</strong>
Students enjoy this project! This is a 2-3 month project. Each class is different and each year is different; therefore, I can’t do everything the same each time I teach the same subject. I give each student a three pronged folder with the packet inside. As I scaffold and model the information to my students, I have students write in the due dates. I make this an at-school project and have students keep their research folder in a designated location. Also, you can choose themes for your project such as children’s authors, presidents, Native Americans, American Revolution historical figures, American heroes, African Americans, famous people/Americans, scientists/inventors, composers, or historical figures from your state. The choice is yours!

I decided to keep the requirement pages for the variations/differentiation choices grouped together in each category. I thought this would be less confusing for the teacher when deciding what to print out for his or her students. It will state “Same as page #” next to the page description in the table of contents.

Happy Teaching!
Sally

Writing Conference Guide and Forms

With over 20 compliments and 15 improvement suggestions, the conference card will help guide what to say during a writing conference with your students! Just like when you scaffold and model the requirements for an essay in a mini-lesson, you do the same thing individually for each student through conferencing. Conferencing will help you deliver differentiated instruction. 

Included in this resource:

✓ How I Use This Resource

✓ Conference Card has

✓ Can Add Information to Blank Conference Card

✓ Meeting Schedule

✓ EDITABLE Tracker

✓ Student Anecdotal Notes

✓ Teacher Anecdotal Notes

✓ Skill Reteach Form

✓ EDITABLE Conference Data

✓ Terms of Use

✓ You Might Also Enjoy…

✓ Graphics and Fonts Credit

YOU MUST HAVE POWERPOINT TO EDIT

Clip art and background cannot be edited.  

The way I use this resource…

In writing, I scaffold and model information to my students. Each class is different and each year is different; therefore, I can’t do everything the same each time I teach the same subject. I start with the basic rubric and introduce 1-3 new concepts each essay. Once I introduce a concept, I hold students accountable for the concepts I taught. If it appears that the majority of the class does not understand the concept, I do not hold them accountable and I reteach the concept. I try not to stifle their creativity by focusing on spelling, capitalization, and punctuation during the first two terms of school depending on the class. I also can easily use the 6 traits of writing with the rubrics. Make sure a topic that is relevant, relatable, and the reasons are researchable is chosen.

You can either laminate and reuse the conference card (quick guide) or cut them out and highlight/circle the remarks choice and staple to each student’s paper. The list can go on and on with the improvement suggestion list. There is an empty column that you can write in your most commonly used suggestions for your students.  

There are meeting schedule sheet/tracker, student anecdotal notes, teacher anecdotal notes, and a skill reteach form. The writing data and conference meeting trackers are editable. With the conference meeting tracker, you can write in check marks to make sure you met with all of your students.

FREE SOCIAL STUDIES LESSON – “Apartheid and Segregation”

by Unitedtoteach

6th – 12th Grade

 

 

These civil rights battles occurred on two different continents, yet they have many similarities. While one civil rights battle occurred under “apartheid” in South Africa, another civil rights battle occurred under “segregation” in the United States. In this activity, students use their book and internet research skills to find out the similarities and histories behind the civil rights battles that took place on two separate continents. How were people’s voting, speech, housing, education and transportation rights infringed? Have rights been improved in recent years? Students answer these questions through this activity. While there is an “answer key” included, answers will vary.

Poetry Unit : The Art of Interpretation No Prep

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Poetry-Unit-The-Art-of-Interpretation-No-Prep-1238103

 

Poetry Unit : The Art of Interpretation   No Prep

 

Product Description
Poetry: The Art of Interpretation – is designed to teach students how to interpret, appreciate, and analyze poetry.

There are nine complete lessons (estimated to last approximately 60 minutes), therefore two weeks of lessons.

This complete, no prep unit is a great way to start! This unit includes a student guide, 9 detailed lesson plans, 2 multimedia presentations (no internet connection required), a detailed answer key with annotated poems and answers, and an end of the unit evaluation with rubric, and answer key.

Just print it and teach it.

Poetry is a very subjective form of art. Some poems you love and others, you hate. What we need to realize is that this is the beauty of poetry. Poetry is not a mystery to be solved. Rather, it is the masterful manipulation of language that has the power to transform the ordinary and to immerse its reader into the world created by the author.

This unit incorporates art to help students understand and appreciate the beauty within words. Also, students will learn how to analyze themes in poetry through paintings and art work.

This HUGE bundle includes:

Each lesson focuses on a different skill set including:
– Knowledge and manipulation of figurative and poetic language
– How to read and understand (appreciate) poetry
– How to analyse poetry
– How to annotate poetry
– How to paraphrase effectively
– How to use symbols
– How to effectively develop themes from poetry
– Creative writing
– Creative activities to learn how to analyse

The unit includes a student packet (20 pages), a teacher packet (with nine complete lessons), and a comprehensive answer key with annotations to the poem (with 17 pages). See the preview for more details.

Poets studied include: (8 poems total)
– Billy Collins – “Introduction to Poetry”
– Anne Marriott – “As You Come in”
– Phyllis Gotlieb – “First Person Demonstrative”
– Edgar Allan Poe – The Raven
– Robert Frost – “Nothing Gold can Stay.”
– John Crowe Ransom -“Janet Waking”
– Woodruff – “I am a Poem that Tells a Lie.”
– Tennyson – “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”

The unit also includes: 

1 – The teacher guide (Contains nine 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) (20 pages)

3 – The answer key includes annotated poems and answers to all student activities (saving you time – 18 pages).

4 – Included is a test with multiple choice questions as well as a 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

6 – Images to project or print

7- An end of the unit creative evaluation, which includes clear and concise directions and rubric. (In a Word document for easy modifications)

– An interactive multimedia Jeopardy game to review figurative language and poetic devices (PowerPoint – no internet required)

– A multi media PowerPoint on how to read and interpret poetry

– A PowerPoint presentation on how to understand symbols and imagery in literature (19 slides)

– A final culminating evaluation with evaluation rubric (left in Word format for easily made modifications)

The unit has been created in such a way as to simplify the teacher’s life. Photocopy the three packages included and don’t worry about it for the rest of the unit. You literally can begin teaching it without any other preparation.

A total of 43 pages + 64 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.

Thesis Writing Poster

 

Product Description

As any English teacher can tell you, the thesis statement is the most important part of the essay. It defines the arguments and orients the reader. Unfortunately, many students have difficulty with the thesis statement. This is why I have created the “7 Steps to Writing an Effective Thesis Statement” poster.

The poster is a step by step guide on how to write the thesis starting with selecting a topic the student understands and walks them through the process until the end.

I am making the poster available in different formats for facility of use in the classroom: 

– The first format measures 70 cm (27.6 inches) (easy printing) PDF
– The second format measure 97 cm (38.2) – information can be more easily read from further away (easy printing) PDF
– One smaller poster PDF
– An image format JPEG
