I LOVE this unit. I would gladly have paid twice as much for it. It is very well organized and very useable. This is the packet to purchase if you want to jump in with material that is classroom-ready!

It is as promised... huge. But I don't like the way it is organized by day. I have to open a file folder, then open four units in that file folder... and there are over twenty folders. It would have been so much easier to have everything as one document and let me print it all out to see what I have. Even if it's 100 pages, it's all still together and not in 30 different files.
Wow, this is exactly as promised - organized and HUGE! I was very impressed, especially for the price. Thank you for such a thorough resources; I was able to go through it and find several items to plug into my current unit. You make it very easy and adaptable to fit into anyone's lesson plans. Well done :)
Hi Jennifer! I will ABSOLUTELY rate your stuff - it's amazing and is well worth good reviews (I just need to purchase first so that I can go through it all and be more detailed in my responses for you). Is your stuff going to be on sale for Black Friday or "Cyber Monday" on the 28th? I just want to make sure I don't miss it!
The site will only let me throw a sale for 4 days in a row. I just updated it and right now, it is set to run through the 25th. So, for sure, "Black Friday" and, provided I remember, I will keep extending it when it reaches the 4 day limit through the end of the year. :) Thank you for the kinds words and future reviews. Hope you and yours have a great holiday!
I teach 8th grade English and absolutely LOVE your resources - I am so excited to have stumbled across your store here on TPT :) I've got several of your items in my cart, but I just wanted to see if you were going to offer any promo codes or "black Friday" coupons over the holidays before I purchase? If so, I would love to hold off and then perhaps add a few more goodies to my cart with the money saved. If not, I'll go ahead and purchase fewer items now.
Thanks for sharing your fantastic items on TPT! I'm particularly excited about your Media Persuasion Unit, as I was absolutely blown away by the sheer volume and detail of that unit in the preview - absolutely AWESOME!
I am glad you have found some useful lessons from my store. I will definitely throw a "holiday sale." As a matter of fact, I will go set that up right now. :) If you don't mind (and haven't already), please take a second to rate items you have purchased...it always helps to have positive feedback). Thank you for shopping and happy holidays.
P.S. The Media Persuasion Unit is a blast!
