Articles of the Week 1.31.18

Do you use Writing Checklists? My freshmen are starting a writing checklist today and will be adding to it the rest of the semester. This article provides practical ideas for creating and using them.
Teaching Literary Approaches in the Classroom lists specific stories to go with critical lens. The more our students recognize patterns, the easier for them to make meaning of texts.
Breaking Through the Midyear Slump provides several ideas to mix things up in the classroom during these long winter weeks.
Professional Knowledge for the Teaching of Writing links to several posts centered on NCTE’s beliefs on the teaching of writing. There’s tons of great info and ideas here.

I am not familiar with EdPuzzle but looks like a good option if you’re wanting to do a flipped lesson. I’d love to hear from anyone who has used this about its functionality.
