Designing a Balanced English Survey Course

March 01, 2019

Before students tackle American Lit, Brit Lit, or World Lit, they are usually introduced to literature through a survey course. This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about designing a balanced English survey course. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed objectives and mandatory elements for survey courses. Read through the chat for ideas to implement in your own classroom.
This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about designing a balanced English survey course. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed objectives for survey courses. Teachers also shared mandatory elements.

Read through the chat below to find out how other teachers balance the different elements of a survey course. You'll get ideas about how to combine concepts. You'll also find out what other teachers struggle with in teaching survey courses.

Hope you'll join us next week for another chat. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
