The resources that I post are, with a few exceptions, intended to be used in high school classes. My resources are aligned with the Common Core Standards, and I have I included accommodation/modifications with most of my lessons. In addition to being an English Language Arts teacher, I am also an ESL teacher, so many of my lessons include tips/accommodations for English Language Learners. My lessons are grounded in the whole language approach and foster critical thinking in students.
