This book is comprised of 30 projects and activities that are standards-based and/or support skill development of the English Language Arts Standards (as determined by the Common Core State Standards Initiative). Many of these projects and activities may be used over and over again as they are developing skills that students will use throughout the year. This is not your typical book that advises teachers on what types of projects and activities are effective. This IS the book filled with those projects and activities. The work has already been done for you! The best part? Students will be so engaged flipping coins, rolling dice, viewing movies, and working collaboratively, they won’t have time to complain about completing school work. At around 50 cents per project/activity, this is truly a steal! A must-have resource for the middle school language arts teacher!
