The secondary ELA classroom is an amazingly important place. It's where students transition from learning to read to reading to learn, and they need a tremendous amount of guidance to make that leap. In Big Ideas for Little Books, authors Shevonne Elliott and Dawn LaFleur present opportunities to help teachers tap into secondary students' childhoods and carry the excitement of story time into more complex concepts.Detailed and engaging, these forty-five lessons use the simple text of children's books to introduce and reinforce the skills required in the secondary ELA classroom. The easy-to-follow lesson plans require little prep work and employ creative methods for helping students learn about concepts such as argumentation, characterization, dialect, imagery, irony, parody, parallelism, and more. Ideas for extension accompany every lesson and provide opportunities for teachers to differentiate instruction and meet the needs of all learners.Big Ideas for Little Books is an ideal resource for teachers who want to engage their students' imaginations while teaching literary analysis and cohesive writing skills. It offers a fresh approach to energizing students and generating excitement about learning.

When Lee hires a free-spirited employee with a tie-dyed, troubled past, she discovers that even the counterculture can conceal a killer.... As much as the chocolate concoctions at TenHuis Chocolade can tantalize people’s tongues, Lee’s newest hire is more likely to make them wag. Forsythia “Sissy” Smith is the granddaughter of Warner Pier’s resident hippie, but the fact that Sissy is a third-generation flower child is the least of Lee’s concerns. The previous winter, Sissy’s husband, Buzz, was found dead, and even though her alibi was airtight, the gossips are still pointing their fingers at her. Then the chief gossip is found dead, with Sissy on the scene. Was she lured there? Or is she the killer? Lee has a sneaking suspicion that someone is out to keep a dark secret from coming to light. And they would have no problem killing a certain clever chocolatier who might uncover the truth.... With Tasty Chocolate Trivia!
