I get a lot of questions about how I lesson plan. In particular, many questions relate to long-term planning. While I have touched on my planning in posts like this and this, some things are just easier to teach when you can use visual aids and you can just talk about it.
So, I made a video lesson! Check it out and let me know what you think! Please be gentle... I'm a YouTube Virgin. ;)

At about 7:27, I start talking about the new unit I am planning for this year for literature circles. With all of sadness and hatred and horrifying things that have happened in this country this summer, I've decided I need to do more in my little corner of the world. This year, we are going to study individuality, diversity, and acceptance through literature circles. If you would like to know a little bit more about my plans or if you would like to make a donation to help me get the novels I will need, please check out my DonorsChoose Project.
