I wrote in a blog post recently that, if TeachersPayTeachers had been around my first year teaching, I might have shaved off a couple of panic attacks. That was 1990. I had a Brother word processor on a small table in my classroom, and that was it. No Internet. No apps. No Twitter. No Periscope. We were still bubbling in our grades on a Scantron, for heaven's sake! Now we have it all at our fingertips, but sometimes, going old school can prevent a headache or two. My English Teacher's Ultimate Binder (all nine ELA versions of it) might just prevent a panic attack or two on your end. Enjoy.
|This teacher binder is only $5.00 and offers 98 fabulous pages of happy organization. A few of the sections are shown below.
|There is a variety of lesson plan templates, one of which offers a comprehensive list of strategies.
|The Internet does go down sometimes, and I always like to have a paper copy of my attendance and grades handy.
|The data tracking sheets list each Common Core standard. As you work with formative assessment tools, bubble in or check off the skills in which students are demonstrating proficiency.
|Here's my favorite part! Each Common Core standard is spelled out, and there's space to explain how you are addressing it. Did you embed? Teach directly? Assess? Re-teach?
