Sometimes, a teacher just needs a lesson or a unit that is classroom-ready. Here is a look at five of my ready-to-go secondary ELA teaching units. Each of these units includes all of the instructional material a teacher would need to simply teach the content and assign the instructional materials.
Short Story Close Reading Bundle
This short story close reading bundle includes seven weeks of short story teaching materials. Each unit comes with a digital or print version of the material, close reading assignments, and a final paragraph writing assignment. With this unit, you can assign and go.
Figures of Speech Teaching Unit
With both the digital and print resources included, this figures of speech teaching unit includes eight mini-units to teach various figures of speech. From allusion to metaphor, it is all there. Each mini-unit includes an instructional slide for direct instruction, sketch notes, task cards, and worksheets. This unit is classroom-ready and also makes a great last-minute sub-plan.

Synthesis Argument Writing Unit
This synthesis argument writing teaching bundle contains all of the materials you will need to assign your students a synthesis argument essay. And with 15 different units and topics included, you can come back to this unit next semester while still providing students with a choice of which topic. Each unit includes multiple sources to synthesize and step-by-step writing organizers.
Teaching Paraphrasing, Quoting, and Summarizing
This paraphrasing, quoting, and summarizing teaching unit has it all: an instructional presentation, multiple student assignments, and blank assignments that you can use and use again throughout the year with any text. Once you teach students how to paraphrase, quote, and summarize text, the versatile organizers and handouts make great emergency sub plans that can be used with any text you have in the classroom or online.
