List of things I did today:
1. Worked on 9th grade curriculum guide.
2. Looked up lexile levels for all text- working to increase text complexity per Common Core Curriculum.
3.Selected novel that my 9th graders will be reading- “Kite Runner” and “Animal Farm”.
4.Found the Text complexity rubric to choose the most appropriate text
5. Created writing, language, speaking and listening activities
I spent 2 hours planning.
I’m entering my 14th year of teaching, and I’m going to try to keep a journal of my activities and thoughts.
