I really love how everything is included. There is one thing more I would love to see. I am required to note, in my lesson plans, what CCSS I am covering in each lesson. Yes, I can go get the standard number but could these be included? I would even pay a little more if I could find a quick reference tool so I didn't have to go searching. Thank you for a wonderful teaching guide.

Thank you I got the link!!!

The CCSS alignment documents are included on our site. We are working to get them included on TPT as well, but in the interim, here you go! https://www.4secondarysolutions.com/v/vspfiles/downloadables/FTM%20Common%20Core%20Alignment.pdf

I purchased the Freak the Mighty Literature Guide but all I recieved in the download is a PDF. Non of the links to the songs, attachments work or perhaps I'm not doing something right? The summary states 88 pages of student work including tests and quizzes. $22.95 is awefully expensive for just a pdf of ideas.
