The creator of this website spent twelve years as an English teacher. The hope is that others will contribute to the English/Language Arts category over time, but even if others do not feel generous divulging their secrets, you have access to many pretty cool lessons, often in ACT or CCR or Common Core skills bands and mostly approved by department leaders. Even if the lessons do not fit perfectly into your world of pre and post tests, continual improvement, PDSAs and SLOs, you can quickly adapt elements to use in your own classroom.

You are the ones who have to keep the hopes Americans SHOULD have of delivering a free, public, liberal arts education to ALL students in this country. Do not take that role lightly and do not conform to teach every lesson in order to produce higher test scores.

  • Super English Lessons

    There's no such thing as a completely free lunch. Some of what I created over the years deserves a subscription. One subscription gets you ALL the best lessons.

    The Quizstar quizzes alone could save you thousands of hours over a career. THOUSANDS! Many of them are ACT-like and even fit specifically into skills bands. Plus, the data analysis is easy.  I was able to avoid using the copy machine as a teacher as early as 2008, and by 2013, I did not even know the code to make copies. Now, you can benefit from all the work I put into my classroom.
