My name is Erin Toth and attached is my pedagogy project, "Reading to Connect: A 10th Grade Conceptual Unit for The House on Mango Street".
This unit plan capitalizes on the unique, poetic quality of Cisneros' vignettes and figurative language. Students will examine prevalent issues through the unique lens of protagonist, Esperanza. With activities meant to spark enthusiasm, the unit plan is based heavily on creative writing and self expression. The title "Reading to Connect" implies the overall objective of the unit plan, which is to encourage students, through a creative medium, to delve deeper into literature and connect, empathize, and relate.
My name is Raymond Callahan Jr. I am in Robert Rozema's Teaching Writing to Adolescence class. This Unit is designed for a introductory 2 weeks of a classroom. The unit plan is designed to briefly introduce students to a few of the major writing genres that the class will cover. It also features an extensive section on Editing. The extensiveness of the editing is done in an attempt to set the precedent in my class room very early that the editing process is extremely important. Attached is a file with all content including my personal lesson plan outlines, handouts and a unit ending project example.

I have created a 20 day pedagogy for the Of Mice and Men novella written by John Steinbeck. My pedagogy project is called Of Mice and Men: A Comparison to the 21st C. This lesson plan is designed for a 10th grade classroom. My main objective for this unit was to help students relate literature to their every day lives. I also intended to make a unit that incorporated meaningful and personal activities that promoted self-assessment and student responsibility. I do this by promoting a student-centered classroom which revolves around the students' progress and input. I also try to reach all of my students by incorporating various activities that adhere to all learning styles .
My name is Drew Tocco and I am uploading my pedagogy project entitled, Did He Say to Eat the Children?? An Introduction to Satire for Eleventh and Twelfth Grade English.
My unit plan focuses on the genre of satire and how it relates to the culture around us. Using both canonical texts such as Gulliver's Travels and The Rape of the Lock as well as contemporary satire like The Colbert Report, students will be able to explore how satire is used to sway opinions and create social change.
My name is Abigail Dykstra and I am uploading my pedagogy project for English 310. My unit is titled Putting it Together: A poetry project for eleventh grade English.
My unit plan focuses on different poetry prompts and how poetry elements such as personification, repetition, authentic voice, ect. can be taught through creative, meaningful prompts. I have incorporated a few of Linda Christensen's ideas into my lesson plans. My hope is that students will eliminate any negative preconceptions they may have about poetry and that this unit will be a positive, meaningful experiance.

Hello, my name is Daniel Bell and I have put together an introduction unit plan for a semester long 11th grade English class with a theme in Culture.
My unit plan takes into account a diverse class with students from an array of backgrounds and cultures. Included in my class is a number of ELL students that I must take into account their special needs. I plan to go on to be a TESOL (Teachers of English to Students of Other Languages) teacher and will be meeting students from all around the world. I also plan on teaching English away from the United States in colleges and universities throughout the world. In my unit plan, I have included some accommodations for the ELLs in my class by studies done by renowned professors that have shown successful strategies to learning for ELLs. I have incorporated these strategies in my lesson plan to let my ELLs be on par with the rest of the English speaking students.
I hope you enjoy it!

My unit plan is a way for students to deepen their understanding of poetry as well as to find new ways to analyze literature and performance. The plan consists of both classroom canon works, such as the Queen Mab monologue from "Romeo and Juliet," Allen Ginsberg and Sylvia Plath, and poetry created and performed by students.
