Lesson Plans

Below you will find links to cross-curricular lesson plans I have used in my 9th grade English classes.  Some of the lessons may encourage you to work with your biology or environmental science colleague(s) while others may be solely focused on English.  All lesson plans can be modified for use in grades 6-12 to fit your classroom and your students.  Get those kids outside!


Nature Writing and a Sense of Place (Grades 6-12)

Coyote Moon: Using the Thesis Machine to Practice Drafting Thesis Statements from Informational Text (Grades 6-12)
