Critical Encounters in High School English: Teaching Literary Theory to Adolescents: Deborah Appleman I'm going to be a first year teacher and ordered the paperback version of this book because I've heard Appleman talk about how useful literary "lenses" are to helping students interpret a text in many different ways. Like Eagleton says, every teacher does "theory", it's just a matter if they want to come clean about it or not. Having the students think about narrating the story from another perspective is what Appleman is all about.

Phrasal Verb ESL Worksheets Phrasal Verb ESL Worksheets Phrasal verbs are very important in the English language. Although they consist of two or more words- usually verb and preposition combinations- they act as if they were one word. Phrasal verbs can be separable (I turned the volume up), inseparable (I have to look after my brother) and intransitive (I showed up late). For more explanation see the glossary.
For teachers - Funky Phrasals Funky Phrasals is a series of 10 conversational programmes in which a selection of phrasal verbs are explored and practised in context. We've created a bank of free downloadable worksheets to give you more scope for using the programmes in class. This unit kicks off the series with phrasal verbs in the context of 'childhood'.

Poetry In-class essay So I no longer have to talk out of both sides of my mouth here on this blog. I'm talking strictly to my students here, particularly in English 1080. Anyone else can go to my other blog at The poetry in-class essays are due on Friday, and I'm not getting the sense that too many people are fretting over it, which I hope is a good sign. I've talked a lot in class about how to go about writing them, but I'll go over the basic idea once more and maybe toss in the occasional hint about how to proceed. First, this is not a research essay.
ENGLISH 9: A Kite is a Victim A Kite is a Victim ~ Leonard Cohen b. 1934 A kite is a victim you are sure of. You love it because it pulls gentle enough to call you master, strong enough to call you fool; because it lives like a desperate trained falcon in the high sweet air, and you can always haul it down to tame it in your drawer.
Mr. Brame's Blog: Leonard Cohen, Poet Today is the birthday of Leonard Cohen. You may know Leonard Cohen as the cantankerous folk-singer from Canada who wrote "Suzanne" and "So Long, Marianne." However, Cohen was a poet and novelist years before his recording career began. His career in poetry has spanned fifty years, from the release of his first book, Let Us Compare Mythologies, in 1956, to the release of his latest, Book of Longing, in 2006. He also wrote two novels, The Favorite Game, in 1963, and Beautiful Losers, in 1966.
