The English Teacher: Teaching Literature--Fiction & Non-Fiction

A new lesson plan resource from Leif Danielson I found in my summer down-time research. This web site--"The English Teacher: Teaching Literature--Fiction and Non-Fiction" contains:

units for teaching facets of literature analysis and appreciation for both fiction and non-fiction literature. Further units will be added. All of these units have been used in the classroom. They have been used with students ranging from 9th grade to college. Teachers should choose the units which they feel are most suitable for the classes they are teaching. Materials on this site can be used for classroom teaching. For other . . . (click HERE to see site)

Thanks for putting this together Leif!

Readers' Comments:

The site provided an eclectic choice of ways to approach works of literature in the classroom. I
particularly liked the lessons for Farenheit 451;
they provided opportunities for students to
engage in a critical discussion about the themes
and issues of the work as well as being able to
apply these issues to their everyday lives.

I wanted to send you an email and couldn't find your link -- sorry. I wanted to know if you'd seen my site www.awaytoteach.net -- there are I think some good ideas and projects including animated texts that my students have created using Flash and Power Point. Please take a look and let me know what you think. I'd love your feedback.

Thanks for that recommendation Joe!
