Learning Support: Citing Sources

This learning support on citing sources is part of an entire lesson plan on the subject that I thought I’d previously posted in these pages. I couldn’t find it when I searched. I’ll take a stroll through the archive soon and get that material out here for teachers’ use.

If you find typos in this document, 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.

Learning Support: English Language Arts Posters Text

For a variety of reasons, I have always found the kinds of classroom decorations available for purchase in “teachers’ stores” (what the heck is a teachers store, anyway?) to be insincerely cheerful and annoyingly inauthentic. For that reason, I developed a short unit on making classroom posters. One component of this exercise is this raw text for making classroom posters on English Language Arts topics.

Observing students as they work on creating posters helps me assess a wide range of student abilities, including organizing and executing a task as well as persisting to finish that task, following directions, reading, writing, and spelling, and understanding the basic concepts the text outlines.

A Learning Support on the Milestones of World History

Well, it’s Monday morning again, and I am pleased to have reached an age at which I no longer dread Mondays.

I posted this learning support on the milestones of world history in a lesson plan; it seems like a sufficiently useful document to publish as a standalone post.

A Learning Support on Basic Literary Terms

Over time, I’ve posted several items like this learning support of basic literary terms. This one is something I assembled for a specific class that was dealing with the terms outlined. Like everything else here at Mark’s Text Terminal, it’s a Microsoft Word document, so you can manipulate the text for your classroom needs.

A Learning Support on the Parts of Speech

Here is a supported glossary on the parts of speech that, if you teach them, could accompany any lesson on English usage or the parts of speech.

A Learning Support on Transition Words

The district office of the school system in which I work just texted the news that, on account of last night’s snowfall here, the beginning of the school day is delayed two hours. So, I’ll make another cup of coffee and push Mark’s Text Terminal to the 1,700 blog posts finish line.

So, here is a learning support for transition words instruction if you do that sort of thing with your students.

A Learning Support on Pronouns and Case

While I’ve posted it elsewhere as part of a lesson plan, I’ll publish this learning support on pronouns and case as a stand-alone post so it is easily searchable.
