Two high school English teachers and their school librarian offer their practical suggestions (efforts) to the literature/informational text/common core puzzle. They will discuss their collaboration and planning process which culminated in classroom instruction. Included in their sharing will be a Shakespeare unit, a multiple media project which led to a piece of argument writing, a Macbeth piece with argument writing, work on To Kill a Mockingbird and Night with Holocaust art, and a museum activity tied to The Last Days of Summer. Many of the ideas and suggestions may be modified for any grade level.
