Today my S2 class started reading the Grampian Children's Book Award Long list! They will vote for their favourites which will become the shortlist. They will then read them, take part in competitions and then vote for their favourite. Hopefully, we'll get to go to the award ceremony and meet the authors!

Reading Fahrenheit 451. One of the best books to create meaningful discussions about technology, boredom, and society. .
.
.
I try to focus assessments around the book but not about the book. I encourage my students to look up spark notes if they aren’t understanding, and I try to engage them in meaningful conversations throughout. All reading is during class. .
.
.
Today, they will start work on speculating future technologies and how they will affect future societies, while reading the book as an accompanying source.

Throwback to one of my favorite projects last year- character analysis recipes from @thesuperheroteacher! One group of students even made their recipe- homemade macaroons to share 💛 our novel is based on WWII and this is a recipe for the Gestapo officer in charge - swipe to see the HILARIOUS ingredients and instructions up close! #codenameverity .

Four years ago I secretly ordered a workout program. My babes were tiny at the time. They were just 1 and 3 years old, and I was tired of trying to figure out how to get to the gym. Plus, I was tired of trying to figure out what I should do to get the best results. 
So I started working out in my basement and following a program that was laid out for me day by day, following a simple meal plan with recipes, and there was no guesswork. I plugged into my online community of other women who were doing the same and were always there to cheer me on. It was hard work, but the results were massive, and I've created a sustainable lifestyle and have kept the weight off. .
.
I have the most wonderful accountability crew and the support of my online community to thank for getting me where I am today. Not only have I gained my health back, but I've been able to reconnect with old friends and gain new friendships, and also earn an income by getting healthy and fit. Now it's my turn to share this community with YOU!
.
.
Do you need a group of uplifting women to support you and encourage you every day? Do you want to live your healthiest life, but just need some help figuring it out? Could you use some extra income? Drop a 💗below or send me a message and I'll fill you in on all the details so you can find out if it would be a good fit for you! 😘

We are reading some news articles and talking about Theranos in my class this week! It’s part of our mini unit based around Adichie’s TED talk “The Danger of a Single Story.” We are looking at various types of “single stories” including press coverage of only one side of an issue, novels told from one perspective, and whose responsibility it is to look at “multiple stories.” #highschoolteacher #elateacher #secondaryela #secondaryelateacher #teachingwriting#teachersofinstagram #2ndaryela

Few things in this world make me happier than this view. This school hasn’t had a theater program in over 25 years, and by looking at these teens today, in our 6th week of the program, anyone can see how deeply this program needed to be revitalized. These kids are safe, happy, and ready to work together. This is why we do what we do ♥️ •

More accurately: You can do a few things well or everything with mediocrity. Your short-term and long-term health and your longevity in the teaching field are not worth trying to do everything well. Prevent teacher burnout by being willing to let some things go! What are you letting go this school year?!?

Each day, more and more I'm reminded why I chose this career. Whether it's the side conversations I have with my kids, a student coming up to me in the hall or at break and telling me about their day, or watching their talents and passions shine through their work and personalities. There's not a moment that goes by that I'm not thinking or talking about my kids. I'm constantly thinking of ways to adjust my teaching that will better reach them and how to help them in different ways. I'm ready for November 16th in order complete my college career, but I know I'm far too attached to these kids to leave so soon. It's just a preview of the bittersweetness that is to come in my next chapter of life. 💓🌟 #internship #ela #secondaryteacher #secondaryela #teachersofinstagram #teacherlife🍎 #blessed

Low stakes, formative writing practice. They saw a model analysis paragraph I wrote, wrote one in collaborative groups, and now they’re writing one on their own for “The Box Man” independently but allowed, and highly encouraged, to use their given resources. It is always interesting to see where they are now and how much they progress by May/June. I’m going through each of these to find high, medium, and low examples to give specific, formative feedback to the whole class. 💁🏻‍♀️ #teachers #teachersofinstagram #teachersofig #teacherlife #teachersfollowteachers #teacherstatus #teachersofinsta #iteach #iteachtoo #instateacher #secondaryela #iteachhighschool #happyteacher #nctevillage #englishteacher #teachtoinspire #writingteacher #iteachwriting #teachingwriting #teachersofthegram #teacherlife #aplang #developingwriters

Today I spent most of my planning calling parents and introducing myself (three weeks late, yes 🙄) I updated parents on how their student was adjusting to the course and policies and their behavior. I called everyone's parents, not just students that needed redirection or were missing assignments. It is so important to call to offer both praise and polish. The parents were very happy to hear from me and it was some of the best luck I've had with calling parents! (📷:@love.learning)

LOVED this super easy Of Mice and Men transformation! I gave my students these detective folders, turned the lights off, and let them find the objects marked around the room. Each item related to something in the book, and they had to predict how. This was my anticipation guide so to speak. 😀 And YES those are real corn stalks. My amazing colleague brought them in for me! Also, please watch the video at the end. His "but I wanna open it" 😍 #teacherhearthappy

I think today went really well! I am embedding a Speaker Series into my senior English classes. For the next few weeks, I’ve intentionally invited guests to speak on their lives and the various paths they took to get there. Today, my friend Levi came in. As an alum of Pacifica HS himself, he was able to share how he went to Orange Coast College as an art major (being an artist all of his life) then taking a comp. sci. class out of curiosity and seeing the creative crossover; he transferred to University of California, Irvine after changing his major and proceeded to work for various companies. He was most recently at Amazon and worked with a team in Irvine and a team in Seattle to help write the code for Alexa’s feature to control films and shows. What an inspiration! He even brought giveaways when he opened the floor up for dialogue after our structured Q&A session. Levi even had a line of students waiting to ask questions into lunch...😂 I hope my students see that I’m trying so hard to make this class relatable and relevant. ❤️🤞🏼 #teachers #teachersofinstagram #teachersofig #teacherlife #teachersfollowteachers #teacherstatus #teachersofinsta #iteach #iteachtoo #instateacher #secondaryela #iteachhighschool #happyteacher #nctevillage #englishteacher #teachtoinspire #writingteacher #iteachwriting #teachingwriting #teachersofthegram #teacherlife #seniorenglish #erwc

• BEFORE AND AFTER • ⬅️ Who says learning about prepositions and prepositional phrases can’t be fun? (Everyone, but that’s not the point) My 9th graders killed it today with this preposition lesson! Sometimes, good old fashioned worksheets really do the trick 😂 We went over a review PowerPoint and then they got a dry erase pocket with a worksheet. They worked with a partner to find the preposition and the phrase, then we shared out! It was quick, easy, and they appreciated that my dry erase pockets are our school colors! 💛💜 #secondaryela #readallthebooks #2ndaryela #elateacher #readmore #klechuponagoodbook #grammar #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofig #teachersofinsta #iteachtoo

GOING ROGUE from the textbook by implementing ART & #AVID strategies to increase engagement & improve skills: comprehension, critical thinking, parenthetical citations, etc. Here are student samples from “The Tell-Tale Heart.” 👁❤️ Also, students further practiced parenthetical citations with an Edgar Allan Poe collaborative poster writing activity shared by @msdefriese🙏🏽. .

My word wall for AP Lang is looking good! I am so happy that they are incorporating these words into their writing. We do one week of writing down the words, parts of speech, and definitions and examples. The next week, we do a variety of activities that exposed students to the words authentically. Then on the second Friday, we take a quiz! So far, so good! The word wall is to help them remember the words during timed writing.  Not to mention it makes for some cool, colorful classroom decor 🌈😊👩🏼‍🏫

Teacher friends! I've been totally Insta AWOL 😖 I totally blame moving to a new school, the start of a new school year, and...well...myself 😜 Anyways! I do want to share some of the things that have been happening in my classroom. One of those was a project I did with my sophomores. A coworker and I created this "Where I'm From" project that made students design a booklet (cover, poem, narrative, and word cloud) all about themselves. It was a great way to get to know my students and encourage them to take pride in their individual stories. I'm a firm believer in peer evaluations, so here are a few snapshots of my students evaluating their peers' projects! 📚💡✏

Plays are meant to be seen and heard! Act them out if you can! 🙌 A few cheap props go a long way, too. I got these handcuffs and the poppet from the Dollar Tree, and I made the warrant online. My John Proctor actors thoroughly enjoyed ripping up the warrant and cursing during today’s scene of “The Crucible.” I love it when they see the word and ask, “Wait, can I actually say it?” 😂 Acting it out is SO much more engaging! If you have any questions about how my students act the play out, drop them here! I’ll answer what I can in the comments and maybe even do some stories or a blog post to address the rest. ☺️

You’ll have to drag me into fall kicking and screaming (bye leaves-on-trees and sunshine 😭); HOWEVER, I love fall clothes—dresses, jean jackets, sweaters, and boots! I love it all. This is the perfect teacher dress (pockets! 🙌🏼). It’s ethical, affordable, and super soft! I wore it with a jean jacket in the morning when it was cool, then switched it up when I started running around my classroom 😆 From @elegance_restored 💗

We are writers. We are authors. One thing I want my students to understand most about writing is that it is a complex and challenging process. It’s all about the process. Authors work hard. Really hard. So today, we Skyped with my little brother @andrewethomas who is in the process of writing his first two novels!! It was amazing!!! “I’m so impressed that the real authors use show, not tell and it isn’t something we just learn in school!” & “That was so inspirational!” were just a few of the comments from my kiddos! They loved it and were engaged. They even got to ask their own incredible questions and got to hear a few sentences from his manuscript!! Thank you, Andrew!!! We are inspired and ready to show up to the page, pick up the pencil and #geauxwritebreaux

Just a little role playing today. Thanks to one of my awesome colleagues, @knowack32 , we have some plays to supplement the chapters of To Kill a Mockingbird. My kiddos loved acting out Miss Maudie’s House fire and one student loved playing Boo by sneaking a blanket around the student playing Scout. Does anyone else use plays or a reader’s theatre for chapter books? #secondaryela #iteachela #teachersofinstagram #englishteacher

PENCILS 
If you haven't seen the latest post by @thedapperap - go check it out. I'm always very inspired by him. I have never asked for anything in return for any school supplies. Do I have pencils left at the end of the year? No. Do my kids have the necessary tools to complete their work in my class? Yes. Do they know I care? I sure hope so. And I dont feel overwhelmed by trying to keep track of a $0.03 pencil. I think I have enough keep up with- like kids taking field trips to the trash can every 5 min. 😆

One of my two senior classes holding their poet bio posters! They've embarked on a semester-long contemporary poet study.

My students were detectives today! (And yes, multiple students/teachers checked my room when they saw caution tape everywhere to make sure everything was okay).

 I like to teach my students HOW to think rather than telling them WHAT to think, especially when it comes to literary analysis. “The Story of an Hour” is one of my favorite short stories, and today my students analyzed the cause of Mrs. Mallard’s death from a literal and/or symbolic standpoint, creating one-pagers to showcase their case analyses and textual evidence.

Task Cards. This was my first time using them and I’m hooked! (Side note: they were a lil time consuming to make bc of me trying to format, but whatever!) We reviewed parts of speech and I posted them around the room and out of order, so the kids had to be up and moving. I was lucky to overhear great debates regarding adverbs vs adjectives! Amazing collaboration and everyone was engaged the whole time. Task Cards = Teacher Win!

💔💔 Setting the bar low•
At the beginning of the year I give out a reading survey to gather students thoughts and opinions about their lives and reading. This year I included the question, “what is one thing I should know about you” after seeing a bunch of teachers on here find success with this question. These students have not been in the seventh grade for more than ONE FULL WEEK. And this is how a student already views himself. I was reading through the responses (some important, some silly) and this was the last one. It broke my heart. To walk into a brand new school year and already have this self-fulfilling prophecy in your head. 😢

Also I really enjoy how he defined what MLB stood for in case I wasn’t sure 😂😂

My favorite classroom decoration is my American Literature Timeline. I can’t remember where I found the photos for this, but I love it! It’s on my front board this year and I reference it daily. #secondaryela #classroomtour #teachlife #teachersfollowingteachers #americanliterature #teachersofinstagram #highschoolenglishteacher #highschoolela #highschoolenglish
Added a lamp to my desk to make it more relaxing during prep and reading time! The kids loved it!!

I have ALWAYS been an advocate for reading • REAL • BOOKS • as opposed to ebooks....but recently...my iPad has been my BEST FRIEND 🙌🏻 Amazon prime now has a TON of ebooks FOR FREE 💸 AND I can literally carry a hundred books with me at once. Am I switching sides for good? 🙈 Probably not. But embracing this kindle app has been a game changer ✔️ #kindle #iPad #ebook

Loved this book! It started out with a hook, got a bit slow right after, but picked up at the end! I loved the way the narrator jumps from present, to past, to small hints for the future. I’m so used to the all the current YA books told from multiple first person narrators...it was a great change. Highly recommend! .

On Monday we had Dr. Anthony Muhammad, PhD visit our school. His talk was very engaging, and I left with several reminders and things to think about. .
He talked quite a bit about how teachers deal with frustration, as either toxic or healthy. I am working on not being as toxic, because I know it does nothing. And is really the easier thing to do then to reflect on my own choices, practices, and behaviors. He even said that “this [teaching] is not an exercise in self-esteem“, meaning when you reflect and think you did something wrong or not at your best, or someone tells you something that they think you could improve or work on, you should not take it personally. We are not here to boost each others’ egos. We can and should always be looking for ways to improve ourselves, so that our students benefit the most they possibly can in their time with us. .

Today, #APlang students built houses of cards. Then, they had to write about HOW they constructed their houses. Most mentioned actions. “We placed two cards together to create triangles.” Some commented on quality. “The cards were too flimsy and worn, so they wouldn’t stay standing.” After reviewing our reflections, we compared this to the construction of a rhetorical analysis essay. We don’t just write about the rhetorical strategies (the cards) in isolation. We write about HOW a writer/speaker manipulates the strategies serve the purpose. I hope they remember as we continue to dive into rhetorical analysis! I saw this activity on the AP Language and Composition Teachers Facebook group. Highly recommend joining if you teach that course!

•BASIC TEACHER STATUS• how have I gone this long without my microphone, for real though. I love it. I love making the kids cringe ☺️ I have my instaxfilm camera- ready to snap pics of kids in action! And don’t forget all of my Rae Dunn! I thought I would reintroduce myself to my new friends on here! 1) dog mom to my Macie girl. 2) I went to the University of Alabama and also uab, and I am one test away from finishing up my Master’s degree at bama now [ROLL TIDE] 3) I’m a huge advocate for our gifted students- my master’s is in gifted studies. I feel that our gifted students often get overlooked because people feel they are “naturally smart.” 4) no, I am not married (aka, I’m single)- yes, I would like to be at some point lol! 5) I love to shop!! Shopping and reading are my fave hobbies ☺️ and walking my pup! 6) I turn 31 in two weeks! 💙 {ps} my Bonaok microphone is definitely a bluetooth Karaoke machine, also. And yes, I did sing Meet Me in the Middle for all of my classes if you are wondering.
