The Weekly Text, March 2, 2018

For some reason, I’ve just endured one of the busiest and most degrading weeks of the school year (and in terms of degradation, there’s plenty more where that came from here in the New York City Department of Education). So I’m exhausted and demoralized.

That said, I do draw some professional satisfaction, and an occasional, quickly transiting sense of achievement from writing on this blog.

So let’s get right to this week’s text, which is a reading on Maya Angelou. You might want to use, or adapt, this comprehension worksheet which accompanies the reading. Finally, here is an Everyday Edit exercise on Women’s History Month to attend any lesson you might want to contrive frome the first two documents. By the way, you can get lots more Everyday Edit worksheets from the generous folks who operate Education World.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
