Mrs. Allison Siddens
Thank you for sharing your thorough, well-organized, thought-provoking work! I am teaching American Literature for the first time this year and feel grateful to have stumbled upon your website. Your insightful connections and ideas for student projects improve my outlook (and my confidence) in teaching the same material.
I have never “blogged” or responded to any website prior to this submission, but I feel compelled to say, “Thank you!” I appreciate you sharing your work for the betterment of students, parents, teachers, and life-long learners!
I just want to thank you for posting your work. I used your Great Gatsby Treasure Hunt with my eleventh grade American Lit class I they really enjoyed it.
I am working to use more and more technology with my students. I am excited to use new approaches of teaching. I think I get a little further with teenagers when I enter their world of technology.
Thank you so much for your site! I love it and plan on using it next year. I just graduated from Auburn University, and I’ll be teaching 8th grade English! I’m nervous, but I’m excited. Sites like yours help me feel a little bit better!
I think this much is enough about this wonderful treasure Dona has been maintaining.
huffenglish.com is a site that would provide several ideas to ELT teachers and enrich them.
