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.
The bundle contains: (The documents, except for the evaluations, are in PDF format.)
The Student Guide has 16 pages:
-Notes on the American Dream
-An anticipation guide
-An in-depth look at success as it pertains to the lives of the students (which will later on be used to relate to the play’s themes.)
-Thematic comprehension questions for each act
-Activity on motifs and symbols used in the play
-Activity on characterization
-Poem association (Langston Hughes)
-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
-Scene guide -Teacher’s comprehensive notes on the play (to help review and to fill students in on signifant symbols….)
-List of themes and how they are developed
Final evaluation contains two 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.
BOTH EVALUATIONS ARE FORMATTED IN WORD DOCUMENTS FOR EASY CHANGES AND MODIFICATIONS.
The Teacher Guide contains 5 pages:

As educators, we have all kinds of fun activities and strategies for teaching and reinforcing sight words for reading and writing. Many of them involve practicing these words out of context. The point of Sight Word Recognition is to be able to recognize these words at a glance, in isolation. But all of the practice needn’t be.
I am in the early stages of creating a series of readers called ‘Sight Word Stages’ readers to help teachers differentiate for their students within the same reading level. While some of our students may struggle with putting all of the pieces of the reading puzzle together and need to work on that, there are many others who simply have difficulty remembering, and who require extra opportunities to practice using these little words in context.
Here is an example of a DRA/Reading Recovery Level 2 Reader:
A color PDF is included in the package, indicating the sight words of focus on the cover.
I print these on thicker paper, laminate them and keep them with other guided reading books.
Directional support is provided with the go to stop method.
A regular black and white copy is provided. Students can color and keep these, if you wish.
A trace-the-sight-word copy is provided for students requiring this level of support.
A fill-in-the-blanks copy is also provided for each title.
Color and black & white sentence strips (Tip: Print color copy onto card paper and laminate, and store with color readers for reuse)
Color and black & white Self-Check lists (I have a laminated color one on the wall over the writing table with a dry-erase marker, but know classroom teachers who give each child their own black and white copy, one who shrinks it to half-size. Early finishers draw or practice words on the back!)
Sometimes – there’s a surprise bonus activity – particularly in the bundles. Check the previews!
Here is what is currently available in the Sight-Word-Stages Readers Series:
