Missouri City resident Micole Williams, a local English teacher and author, is celebrating the release of a project that is close to her heart and designed to serve as a resource for fellow high school English teachers. The author will share insights from her new book at a virtual book launch moderated by Fox 26 journalist at 7 p.m. on Oct. 26, 2020.
“Miss Lit for Life Lessons: for High School English Teachers, by a High School English Teacher” has been a project in the making for more than a decade and is inspired by student needs and the world around us, shares Williams. In the book, she provides engaging and effective modern-day ELA lessons, including two types of lessons: 1) Those learned while teaching, and 2) Those she designed and developed for her diverse students each year. A passion project for Williams, the book was shaped by verbal and written student-input about what worked best for students and helped them increase in skills and scores.
“I hope this textbook will help many teachers, like myself, navigate the new space that we are in, due to the pandemic. These are tough times for our education world and we need all the resources we can get to keep ourselves uplifted with options to reach students in this new world. The book addresses these face-to-face and virtual needs,” said Williams.
An educator with more than a decade of experience, Williams has defined, planned, and designed a journey for fellow teachers and their diverse learners across grade levels. The book includes a compilation of crafted challenges for 21st Century learners that can be applied in various classrooms. In five chapters, Miss Lit for Life Lessons provides writing prompts, manageable exercises, discussion questions, and graphic organizers that can be successfully implemented in any curriculum.
