There is nothing more dangerous than a well-prepared teacher.
Think about it.
Take a motivated teacher, armed with good resources and a desire to make difference. It’s more than a desire to help students engage in the process of learning a new language. There’s a bigger dream. It’s the secret hope of showing students how to become aware of the world around them.
Sure, it’s a big dream. But, isn’t that what good teachers do?
Here’s the dangerous part. There are lots of problems in the world. Heck, that’s certainly true where I live. What can teachers do? Don’t just teach your subject in the class. Do more. Aspire to teaching knowledge, problem solving and critical thinking.
Therein lies the danger. There’s nothing more dangerous than people who can think for themselves.
Teaching need not always follow the book. I believe teachers can make learning fun, challenging and dangerous all at the same time. It just takes verve and a few good resources.
I’ve got the resources. Did you bring your verve?

I used stories from http://www.commonlit.org to create these 2-week short story unit for 10th or 11th grade students. Perfect for online work.
You’ll need to create a free commonlit account (and your students might have to as well in order to see all stories). You don’t get any emails from them- it’s a very reputable site.
I also found audio on YouTube for all of the stories. And I made quizzes for these stories on Quizizz.com. If you want to use those, create a free account. It’s easy. That way when students take the quiz, you’ll get a grade report.
HERE IT IS:
I made a 6-day short story unit that would be PERFECT for students to do from home. You could probably stretch it into a 2-week plan.
I use stories from http://www.commonlit.org. I also use some of their questions and vocabulary words.
I was able to find YouTube audio for ALL SIX of the stories! And for 5 of the stories, there are links to online quizzes students do. I made them through Quizizz.
All I ask is that you comment below to let me know what you think of this item!
Well, it’s Wednesday, March 18, 2020. This is the 3rd day of “online school” since school was closed due to the CoronaVirus.
So far, I enjoy online school. It’s fun to make videos, organize assignments, and interact with students online. Many other teachers really like doing Google Meet classes.
I miss the interaction with other adults, though. I’m trying to organize an online poker game with all my teacher buddies. Hopefully they’ll download the PokerStars app and we can make it happen.
We could get a private poker game going, open up Google Meet and talk to each other, and all from the comfort of our home. If that doesn’t work, I’ll have to figure out something else.
