Formal Essay Handbook plus more resources….
Sunwest School Division has a Wiki with ELA resources. A revised version of The Formal Essay Handbook is posted on the Sunwest Wiki Resource. The Wiki is a resource for ELA teachers. You can use their resources and share any of your own resources if you would like by joining their Wiki. The link is below:
Before-During-After strategy charts from the Ministry:
Most ELA teachers got posters of the before-during-after strategy charts from the Ministry.  I have attached the strategy charts if you did not get them or need extras. Click on the link below:
ELA Concept Map is a very good reference for teachers:
ELA Folder-Public Drive
January 8th, 2015
I added two ELA A30 lessons to the Public Drive:
1. Poem “The Lonely Land” by A.J.M. Smith
2.  Essay ” Prairie Summer” by W.O. Mitchell
Go to: Computer-Public-Department Resources-ELA
I have put together a ‘Book Talk’ on the Smartboard for ELA A30 and added it to the Public Drive.
If you do not teach ELA A30 but think this would be useful for other ELA classes, please let me know.
The ELA Blog would not hold Smartboard files  so Braydon created a file for it in the public drive.
Go to: Computer-Public-Department Resources-ELA -ELA A30-Smartboard Novel Study.
For most of the books I was able to add a link to either the author’s home page or a book trailer created by the author. On the bottom left hand corner of the image of the book you will see a small globe. If you click on it, the link will open.

iLit Resources:

We read “Allan Sapp, Keeper of Stories” by Robin Dyck in ELA A30. We read this selection after reading the poem “The Lonely Land” by A.J. M. Smith. Both selections fit well in the ELA A30 Curriculum in Unit 2 ‘questions for deeper understanding’- Natural and Constructed.

We read “Three Young Guns” by Gord Ellis in ELA A30. The students liked the interview format and related to the youth he interviewed.
