This is a well-designed set of lesson plans for teaching The Forgotton Door. I appreciated that the plans were easy to follow and use, and included a variety of activities, worksheets, and tools to teach this book (some of which I will use with other novels now, too!). It does not include comprehension question worksheets, though. I bought this product along with "The Forgotten Door Study Guide" by TBird on this same site, which is a set of worksheets for every chapter of the book. Together, both products made a nice combination for teaching this book.

Please help -- I already purchased this item, but somehow missed being able to download it. I paid with PayPal and then asked to go back Teacher Synergy, but did not see any way to download. What do I need to do now?
