Lesson Plans for Teachers

August 2018: BREAKING NEWS! My lesson plans are now available for pre-order on Amazon, and the e-book will be delivered on August 15, just in time for the school year. Are you a teacher seeking a fresh way to teach writing to students of all ages? I want to help you. I’ve created two suites of lessons plans to accompany Sin and Syntax. They are envisioned to take you through two separate semester-long courses. The first of the two semester-long courses focuses on grammar and writing. It is suitable for high school, college, and professional-level students. (For a taste of the lesson plans, see this page.) You may use, adapt, append, or amend my lesson plans, but please remember that the materials are copyrighted. The second suite focuses more on the "Music" section of Sin and Syntax, encouraging more advanced writers to explore their own voices and to experiment with literary devices like metaphor, melody, and rhythm. [caption id="attachment_4020" align="aligncenter" width="187"] The e-book is available at Amazon and other outlets for digital books.[/caption] If you would like the full lesson plans for both of these courses, they are now available in digital form, starting with the Kindle edition. (The modest fee of $4.99 is intended to make them available inexpensively to teachers while paying for some of the hard costs to produce them.) If you would like to print the handouts in the e-book for your students, they are available in PDF form here. There are also posts in "Talking School," the teacher’s area of this Web site. Enjoy! Keep doing the wonderful work you do in teaching writing! With all my respect, Connie
