Start A Business: Project-Based Learning Issue
Students will learn persuasive techniques in order to create a product and persuade a panel of investors (teachers, administrators, or other guests) to support them in their business venture. Their presentations will require planning, reading, research, and writing to really nail those pitches!
Evidence + Analysis Detective Issue
Whether they’re solving the mystery of the Brannon Theater or figuring out who stole a priceless wedding ring, students will have too much fun sorting through clues, spotting red herrings, and filling out their Detective Notebooks to notice that they’re learning all about inferences, evidence, and argumentative writing.
Haunted Forest Escape Room
These lessons, which include a fun card game and interactive escape room activity, will help your students learn about plot structure and character traits in a truly memorable way. We've included the full lesson here, so your teachers can download it and use it right away in their classrooms!

What's Included in The EB Teachers' Club?
The first day of each month is the new Monthly Issue day.
We craft each monthly issue by pairing a vital ELA topic—based on the standards—with a fun theme. The activities within an issue can be used to cover multiple days of instruction.
Each month, teachers also receive two coupon codes that allow them to download two resources from our extensive marketplace.
- Want holiday-themed writing prompts? We’ve got you. (Kids love our gingerbread house unit.)
- Teaching The Outsiders? There’s a complete novel unit with everything from a scavenger hunt to a final assessment.
- Looking for a quick, engaging warm-up that will address all of the ELA standards (and isn’t as dry as a slice of two-day-old birthday cake)? Let’s talk bell ringers.
Need more? As a Teachers’ Club member, your teachers always get an additional 30% discount on all resources within our marketplace.
PD That Actually Helps
Many teachers fall into the trap of being REACTIVE when it comes to planning and instruction.
We’ve created these trainings to break that buy, teach, throw away cycle and help ELA teachers become PROACTIVE in terms of how they approach writing as well as how they plan for the weeks and months to come.
The centerpiece is our unique framework, The EB Lesson Planning Approach. Inside, your teachers get a start-to-finish Batch Planning Boot Camp that covers:
- Your Scope and Sequence
- The Day-to-Day of Lesson Planning
- Crafting Into, Through, and Beyond Lessons
- Batch Planning Foundations
This is the heart of everything teachers do in EB Teachers’ Club—we’ll teach your teachers exactly how to think through the school year, from their overarching goals to the no-stress planning technique that’s going to change their life.
The best part of the Teachers’ Club?
Hanging out with other middle school ELA teachers in our private online community. We're a positive group of teachers who truly support each other, all on the same mission: to impact students.
Downloaded a resource and need tips on modifying it for students below grade level? Looking for a novel that will keep your kids interested—and challenged? Having trouble with getting a file to load in Canvas?
This is your teachers' one-stop shop for all of the questions only another teacher can answer.
We love to bring in rockstar educators to deliver live workshops on specific topics related to middle school ELA.
Here’s a sneak peak of who we've hosted in the past:
- Motivational Speaker & Principal, Gerry Brooks
- TedX Speaker, Monica Genta on “The Rooted Classroom: 3 Ideas to Engage in SEL”
- 8x TedX Speaker, Blake Fly on "Gratitude in the Classroom"
- Trevor Muir, Ashanti Branch, Jenn Gonzalez and many more!
What Teachers Are Saying
"Having taught three years with EB now, the time I've gotten back to be a better wife and mother is huge. I get to sit down and enjoy dinner with my family.
I've been trying to help my colleague with this [approach to teaching] because every day she's going home and spending three or four hours prepping her next day's lesson. She's like, “I'm so tired. I feel like a first-year teacher all over again.”
And I said...you don't have to be this exhausted.
I'm ready for the next day. I'm not panicked about teaching in a couple of hours, because I know what I'm doing, I have it ready to go."
– URSULA FAGERSTROM, Grades 9-10
"My admin sent me a message and talked to me in person about how excellent my classes were, how engaged the students were, and how they're so proud of 'the teacher I have become.'
The kids shine ever so brightly today and just capture everyone's hearts! I am so pumped for tomorrow!"
- FRAULINE WALKER, Grades 5-6
