Three common core aligned lessons

Each month, Teach Box brings you three surprise lessons!  Each lesson is linked to any combination of the essential content areas for English teachers:  vocabulary, grammar, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and presentation skills.  The lessons are Common Core aligned and Google Drive ready: this means you can download and print the lessons as they are, or take your time making your own edits to the handouts and push them out through Google Classroom.  The Teach Box team aims to bring you rigor, creativity, versatility and variety every single month.

essential question resource library

Each box is tied together by one big, thematic essential question.  To support students on their quest toward answering this question, the Teach Box team curates a monthly resource library to inspire your teaching.  This library contains links to articles, videos, podcasts and more.  Dig in and be inspired by some of the most beautiful writing available online!

tone word toolkit

There are so many important skills that English teachers have to teach and reteach all year long, and one of those is the identification and analysis of tone.  To help you on that journey, Teach Box creates three beautifully designed images with words and definitions for you to share with students printed in your classroom or even cataloged on a slide show.  This tool kit grows each month you are a subscriber - three new words are crafted each month to match the essential question of the month!

Meet the Amandas:  A True Teaching Soulmate Journey

Amanda Cardenas and Amanda Werner are two passionate curriculum writers and English teachers from opposite sides of the United States.  Amanda Cardenas was hard at work teaching high school English, building her business (Mud and Ink Teaching) and running around the Midwest camping and off roading with her husband while Amanda Werner was also hard at work teaching middle school, building her business (Amanda Write Now) killing it with mini-lessons and Writing Workshop while raising a beautiful little girl and living it up in the Bay Area.  

Amanda and Amanda met in April 2016 as fans of each others work on Periscope.   Amanda Cardenas was Periscope-ing about poetry and Amanda Werner was Periscope-ing about writing workshop.  As fate would have it, the two found their way into each other's scopes and a lifelong friendship began.

When Amanda and Amanda were able to meet up the first time, it was July 2016 in Orlando at the Teachers Pay Teachers conference.  This conference and this time together launched the two Amandas past just a friendship into a business partnership.   

And now, they have finally joined forces to bring English Language Arts teachers across the globe the best of their passion and talent:  TEACH BOX!  Amanda C writes curriculum for the 9-12th grade boxes and Amanda W writes curriculum for the 5-8th grade boxes.  This is their passion project and are thrilled that you are here to participate in this dream come true.
