Middle School ELA Help for School Closings: E-Learning Resources

Need help preparing for Middle School E-Learning?  There are many free resources here to get you started!

As you may know, I am a teacher too - I'm still in the classroom and in my 26th year.  That means I understand all too well how difficult school clsoings and the idea of remote learning will be for all of us.

That's why I reached out to all of you who follow me on various social media outlets and asked what you need.

Many shared that they are concerned about test prep and teaching writing.  A group of secondary ELA educators have joined together to bring you a shared folder full of ELA resources that can support your e-learning journey.

Get FREE Middle School ELA E-Learning Resources in this Shared Folder up to May 1, 2020.

As you may also know, I am the co-admin of the #2ndaryELA Facebook group.  This community has many shared resources also available in a shared folder.  These resources, however, are not exclusively digital.  Even so, they may help you with designing your own.

Join the #2ndaryELA Facebook group which gives you the resources you want from the teacher community you need!

Last, but not least, there are resources in the resource library on this blog.  I have just added a free argumentative essay video where where I go through the entire process of writing that kind of essay using texts from NewsELA and a prompt based on our state's test (I am in Florida).  I include the prompt and links to the texts so you could choose to use this with your students if it suits you.

Great video for teaching the text-based argumentative essay with embedded counterclaims remotely!

I also converted a citing evidence lesson into an e-learning lesson that you can get for free by clicking here.  

Help your middle school students learn how to cite evidence with this FREE e-learning lesson!

I sincerely hope these things help get you through the next few weeks and that you stay strong mentally and physically!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Yes, I fully understand. It is really sad what's going on and it is in our best interest to stay home and our kids stay home too. So we are planning to dedicate this time to e-learning and also my wife and me need to think of our kids' future. We must start saving money for their university. So I plan to read an article https://cashcat.ph/blog/home-credit-cash-loan/ about taking loans so hopefully it will help me with ideas for a student loan.


Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope to hear from you and will reply via e-mail. :)
