Teaching Is Easier with Our New Lesson Templates

By on January 26, 2016

When we built our digital lesson planner, we wanted to give teachers a few standard-aligned templates so they had a place to start. The templates save time and make planning easier for teachers because they offer a lesson that is 75% complete. Over the years, the lesson templates have received great reviews, so we decided to expand our library of templates this year. Now, teachers grades 4-12 have reading and writing templates that they can use to get started teaching state literacy standards.

We have lesson templates for science, history (social studies), and English. If a template doesn't fit exactly what you need, "Add it to your lessons" and make changes. You can change the grade, subject, prompt, standards, and skills. The lesson is yours. Make it work for you and your students.

This is just a sampling of our 14 lesson templates. From reading and writing about main ideas to analyzing arguments, we have a template for you!

I found something on understanding questions, where the student looks at the verbs in the questions. I cannot find that any longer. I want to use this in my class, looking and analyzing the verb in the question. Can you help me find it?

Hi Ms. Corbin. I think you are referring to Analyzing Text-dependent Prompts. http://www.literacyta.com/literacy-skills/analyzing-text-dependent-prompts. On this page you will also find a handout called Verbs in Prompts. This helpful document defines verbs as they are used in writing tasks. I hope this helps.

Literacy Standards In Action

We've mapped our literacy lessons and reading, speaking, and writing skills to state standards, Common Core, and NGSS. The standards are "the what" to teach. Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.
