I have a store on a site called Teachers Pay Teachers. They take a fairly large cut of sales, but I think it’s still a great resource for both sellers and buyers. I’m not sure why, but this month my sales are in record breaking numbers. I do have a lot of poetry items (and April is poetry month) but I am also selling a lot of journalism lesson plans, and even Night unit plans. The last of these is the one I really can’t figure out, not that I’m complaining. Are teachers already planning for next year?? I never even knew what I was teaching usually until September, when school was just about to start. Or is it the time of year when teachers are exhausted and out of ideas and looking for help? This would be my guess! I remember those days well. Whatever the reason, I’m happy to be helping fellow teachers (and making some pocket change in the process.)
I’ve also gotten some great recent feedback, like this from a journalism lesson plan on media bias that used the Trayvon Martin case: “My first time teaching this–this was a great help to me. Thanks!”
