Long Range Plans

In Blog by jordankent

Before the summer break, I like to build the framework for my next year. I started off with the idea of the Five Ws: Who, What, When, Where, and Why. I narrowed that concept into the following topics.

  • Identity (Who)
  • Discovery (What)
  • Memory (When)
  • Home (Where)
  • Intent (Why)

The units are coming together nicely. I have some engaging projects planned, but they are still in development.

As always, I’m switching up the texts that I teach. I like to keep things fresh. My major strategy for texts is to expose students to more texts through excerpts. Although I’ll still have a few plays and novels on the required reading list, I’m going to try having a recommended reading list to push my stronger students.
