This was so much better than what my new school has been using with NTS for years! It was so fun to be able to introduce them to new and better ways to teach the same book!

Thank you so much for this unit. I LOVE that it was totally focused on PRE-READING. I'm currently working with an ESL student who grew up in a foreign country who doesn't have any background knowledge of the Holocaust, WWII, the Nazis, etc. --So this whole pre-reading unit is extremely useful for me! Thanks!

This was very comprehensive and well presented. I used it with my 4th graders and considered it a complex text that we did together. Thanks so much for pulling this all together for us!
