Lesson Plans

This is a repository for all my units. This is for any students, parents, teachers, and/or administrators who wish to view my plans or for any students or parents who are curious about what is coming up. I also update weekly to let stake holders know where exactly we were in the unit, exactly what we’ll be doing for that week.


  1. I have found this site very useful and I truly appreciate and applaud your efforts. Very nice!
    Thank you!

  2. Thank you. There are many hours of labor behind it.

  3. WOW! I can’t thank you enough for sharing your mood v. tone page. It truly lends clarity to the concepts.

  4. I am sending my 9th grade to students to your mood versus tone page as we embark on lyric poems by Sappho if you are okay with that. Your site is inspiring and valuable.

  5. I appreciate the kind words. It’s taken many years to get this site to this level of development, but everyone keeps coming back for the tone and mood words page. Glad it was helpful.

  6. I absolutely LOVE your site and wish that all teachers (including high school and college) provided this much information to students and parents! There really is NO excuse for not turning in work. Thank you for being so thorough and professional.

  7. Thank you for the kind comment. It’s been a long time in the making, though, and that’s part of the reason that it seems so stuffed with info. Honestly, probably a good 10% of it needs to be pruned back, but I just haven’t made the time to do it.

  8. This looks extremely helpful!

  9. Please sign me up for daily updates.

  10. Good news: according to my records, you’re already signed up!

  11. Could you tell me what book on kindness you used for the August 16th lesson?
    Thank you

  12. I have read so many articles concerning the blogger lovers however this piece of writing is in fact a fastidious post, keep it up.

  13. And this piece of writing is such a beautiful exemplar of obvious spam that, after removing the link to your site, I had to publish it.

    Fastidious? To describe a blog post? That will leave me grinning all day long.

Comment Policy

We welcome comments from readers, but like most websites, we have some guidelines for commenting. Above all, avoid comments that are filled with profanity and aim simply to insult. When we receive such comments, we publish them after redacting the profanity, and then we reply, usually with a critique of your use of language and sometimes with some grammar tips. In addition, we might share your email address publicly in the event that you leave a comment that does not conform to our comment policy (see above). We do this as a service: if you are leaving such comments, you likely need help with your writing (how to express anger without using profanity) and/or your social skills (knowing when a comment needs to be shared and when it needs to stay inside your own thoughts). We will sometimes publish your email in the response to your comment so that other readers can email you to offer their help as well. Some visitors might find that this makes them look foolish. Readers who wish to avoid looking foolish, therefore, should not submit such comments.
