Teaching Literature Skills in the Secondary ELA Classroom

April 12, 2019

While some teachers use a literature anthology and some teachers are able to choose all of their own texts, we are all teaching the same literary elements. This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about teaching literature skills. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed the specific skills they focus on when teaching literature. Teachers also shared where and how they find the texts to match the skills they are teaching. Read through the chat for ideas to implement in your own classroom.

Read through the chat below to find out how to teach students to identify theme. You'll get ideas about how to differentiate lessons for students who need extra support. You'll also find suggested resources for teaching literary elements.

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.
