Thanks to Kaitlyn Kellsey for the following:
Here are some of the best resources I have found. They saved me time and time again during my first year of teaching!
Commonlit.org This website has everything from printable fiction texts to entire units planned already for you! It is American so its standards based, but it’s easily adapted to meet our outcomes.
NewsELA This website is awesome for nonfiction texts. Articles upon articles on everything! They update everyday so you can find super recent articles to study with your class.
Teacher Facebook groups This is the best advice and support groups for ELA teachers. The teachers in there Facebook groups have helped me so much this year!
– 2ndaryELA – Creative High school English – AP Literature and Composition – High School ELA Teacher Support Group – Grammar Gurus
Tons of these kinds of groups exist. These are the five that I rely on most.
English teacher Instagram accounts I follow: My Instagram is almost solely utilized for my new career. There are so many amazing teachers sharing amazing things through their Instagram accounts. – @writeonwithmissg – @doccopteaching – @theengagingstation – @englishelixir – @room213
Poetry: Split This Rock http://www.splitthisrock.org/poetry-database This is an awesome website to find contemporary, socially conscious poetry.
