I used the idea of the Virtual Word Wall from the Ready, Set, Coteach team. This blank template is just a Google Slide with a table.  You can customize the numbers of rows or column, as well as anything else when you make your own copy.  I like consistency for the user experience, in this case, first grade English Learners.  So the colors stay the same and the format is the same each week.While mine focus on supporting our new adoption of HMH Into Reading, a virtual word wall can work in any content area, at any age level.  It could also be in a World Language setting.

Overview:

Birth of a Colony explores the history of North Carolina from the time of European exploration through the Tuscarora War. Presented in five acts, the video combines primary sources and expert commentary to bring this period of our history to life. The opening segment describes the forces that motivated European exploration and colonization of the New World. Explorers and colonists encountered native peoples with agricultural lifestyles, strong communities, and respect for the land. These Indian communities saw themselves as part of nature, and they lived in harmony with the natural world. Their spiritual practices, such as the Green Corn Ceremony, reflected this worldview. The Europeans came to the New World primarily in search of land and riches. With two such different cultural viewpoints, clashes were inevitable. This teacher's guide includes a strictly social studies lesson and a complementary ELA lesson (writing assignment).

Cicero, Pro Caelio, Performance and  Latin Text
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

On behalf of Marcus Caelius in the spring of 56 B.C.E. Roman oratory was a living art. Orators knew that the persuasive power of a speech did not come from the force and clarity of its argument alone. A speaker needed not simply to be heard distinctly, but to project the kind of confident, engaging personality that could win an audience's good will and command its belief.

Common Core-Aligned Interventions for Adolescent Readers - EL Education
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-ND
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

These resources were designed to help teachers build students’ capacity to read, think, talk, and write about complex texts. The 6-8 ELA modules fully address all the strands of the Common Core state standards: the reading standards for both literary and informational texts, the writing standards, the speaking and listening standards, and the language standards.

To ensure that students receive adequate support and practice, as well as sufficient time to meet the volume of reading required by the CCSS, this Interventions resources package provides suggestions and examples of literacy work to support, reinforce, and provide additional practice of the skills learned in the EL Education ELA modules.

This resource designed to help school leaders, instructional coaches, general education teachers, special education, and intervention teachers think and plan together about strategic ways to best use additional support time beyond the typical ELA block. The suggestions here could certainly be applied to all learners, but are targeted particularly for students who aren’t meeting grade level standards during a standard class period.

This package contains suggestions that teachers can adapt to meet the specific needs of their students needing additional support. Teachers should use their judgment and knowledge of the abilities of their particular students to focus this additional ELA practice and instruction where it is required, and to adapt the activities and examples accordingly.

There are various ways to organize time so teachers can pull small groups and provide additional whole-class instruction on discrete skills, as deemed necessary by formative assessments.

This package includes:
• Word Study and Vocabulary
• Additional Work with Related Texts
• Fluency
• Syntax and Mechanics
• Independent Reading
• Sample Schedule
